Jeanette Scotti grew up outside of Seattle, Washington. She attended Oregon State University, home of the Fighting Beavers, where she received a degree in Business with an emphasis in Management Information Systems in 1996. Throughout her undergrad years she also played on the OSU women’s soccer team. After a stint in the business world, she returned to OSU in the summer of 1999 to obtain a Masters Degree in Teaching. During her masters program she also completed her English as a Second Language endorsement. Jeanette taught for one year in Portland, OR then decided it was time to venture away from the Northwest. She has been at Columbine Elementary since 2002 and has found Columbine to be the perfect fit. Jeanette admires the staff here for the hard work they consistently put forth. She loves teaching all of her students and has learned some of her best life lessons from them. She feels fortunate that she has a strong team of colleagues to work with everyday. A few of Jeanette’s passions include hanging with her son and her husband. She also enjoys being with her peeps, eating, laughing, playing soccer, running, or some sort of exercise that is fun, being outside, reading and traveling. She is an avid fan of any Oregon State Athletic team or former athlete.
