Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Michael Scanlon

This is my 9th year at Bluffs Middle School and my 33rd year overall in teaching.

I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln (1988), a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership (2007), and a Master’s Degree in Special Education from the University of Nebraska at Omaha (2013).  In addition to teaching, I have also worked as a Social Worker when I lived in Omaha, NE.


My philosophy is that all students have unique talents to be successful regardless of the challenges they face.  It is my responsibility to help them identify their talents to help motivate students to learn the skills of self-advocacy and self-determination to be successful.
