About Mr. Scholtes
I'm a Science teacher with eight years experience teaching VCE Biology and Chemistry, IB Chemistry and Theory of Knowledge, as well as a number of junior science classes.
After graduating from La Trobe University, Bendigo I moved to Melbourne where I spent five years working at Diamond Valley College before leaving to pursue a long held dream of working overseas. In January of 2015 I was lucky enough to secure a position at Shanghai Community International School and was very excited to start my international teaching career. After falling in love with an American girl it looks like the next adventure will play out somewhere closer to the States.
I started this website so that as I change schools throughout my career I will have an organised repository for my teaching materials that can easily be accessed by students, parents and other teachers, but I'm hoping that it will become something a little more than that. As the complexity and ubiquity of digital technology increases I see more and more potential for it's use in education. It's not my goal to reinvent the way that learning occurs in schools, but through experimentation I am hoping to make a small contribution to a change for the better.
Please feel free to use any of the materials that I have created for your own purposes, and I welcome any new ideas or suggestions that you'd like to share!
