Scott Malone

Asst. Principal /Athletics /Activities

When I was a child I didn't always know what I wanted to be when I grew up even though most of the other children seemed to know what they wanted to do for a career.  However,  I did know that Art was going to be part of whatever it was.  I have always enjoyed drawing, and it gave me the freedom to express myself.  I was not the best artist in my class, but I worked at it until I was.  I taught myself how to draw using comic books for inspiration.  The rest is history.     I was born and raised here in Omaha, NE. I attended Jefferson Elementary for kindergarten, and St. Thomas More for grades 1-8.  I graduated from Daniel J. Gross High School and entered Creighton University in 1988.  I graduated from Creighton with a BFA degree in 1993, and worked the next couple of years as a graphic artist, as well as doing many other things for a small insurance company.  These experiences along with helping chaperon some School trips made me realize that I wasn't doing what I wanted to with my life.  I went back to Creighton and received  a teaching endorsement in 1998 and have been teaching since then.  I started as a travelling Art teacher going between Bryan High School and Parish Alternative School, my second year I became full-time at Bryan High, where I remained until the opportunity to work at Alfonza W. Davis opened up.  I am happy to claim this is my 19th year as a teacher and I love what I do.  I have been coaching football for the past 10 years (varsity assistant and defensive coordinator at Davis), and basketball for the past 13(head boys, and girls assistant at Davis) and also enjoy that aspect of the educational world.  

     I enjoy teaching at Davis and the Middle School level because the students have such vibrant imaginations, and they will actually try to improve as artists.  I can honestly state that I am where I should be at Davis, and enjoy making quality young men and women out of your children.  I recently completed my Masters in Educational Leadership from Creighton University and look forward to utilizing the knowledge and skills I gained to help Davis achieve the mission of preparing our young men and women for success not only in the classroom but in life as well.
