Mrs. Maureen Scruggs


Though born and raised in Southern California, I have made Alaska my home for over 10 years now.  I have served as a special education teacher with the Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District since 2016 and have served for a number of years as both a substitute teacher and tutor, as well as being a parent of two children who have been attending Mat-Su schools since we've lived here.  I have worked in special needs fields in several capacities, including careers as a developmental therapist and paraeducator.  Together with my team of amazing professional paraeducators, I strive to create a classroom setting that recognizes and addresses each student's individual strengths, needs, and challenges in a safe, encouraging, and supportive atmosphere.
