Let’s celebrate! Veteran NVUSD teacher and current American Canyon High School (ACHS) economics instructor Scott Marsden was honored with the 2023 California Council for the Social Studies (CCSS) Economics Educator Award at the annual CCSS conference held this year in Santa Clara. 

Scott Marsden Received Economic Educator Award at CCSSScott Marsden's dedication to teaching and passion for building relationships with his students is truly admirable. His ability to empower his students to use economic reasoning to make informed decisions about their future is a testament to his skill and dedication as an educator. His efforts in bringing real-world experiences to his economics classes through guest speakers and projects demonstrate his commitment to providing a well-rounded and engaging educational experience for his students.

Moreover, his recognition as the 2017 UC Davis C-STEM (Integrated Computing, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) teacher of the year is a further testament to his excellence as an educator. His contributions to student empowerment and his dedication to strengthening students' mastery of economic reasoning have significantly impacted the lives of his students and the education community. ACHS principal Crystal Lopez emphasized, “Mr. Marsden is a tremendously hard-working teacher who puts the well-being of his students first. He is thoughtful, compassionate, and rigorous. He is much deserving of this recognition.”  There is no better place to see and hear his impact on students than the 2022 ACHS graduation ceremony, where he was honored as the Esteemed ACHS Teacher by the 2022 graduating class (watch the moment and his speech to the graduating class below). 

Scott Marsden's 2023 California Council for the Social Studies Economics Educator Award is a well-deserved recognition of his tireless efforts and contributions to the field of education. We invite you to join the entire NVUSD education community in congratulating him on this well-deserved achievement and thanking him for his exemplary work in empowering students and advancing education.
