Hi there, welcome to my classroom page! My name is Samantha Scanlan and I am a teacher at Plainfield South High School in the Math and Science Division. I have been teaching for 17 years, all of which have been in Plainfield School District 202. I began my teaching career in 2001 at Plainfield Central Campus and in 2009 transferred to Plainfield South. Throughout the years I have taught many classes in the Science Division and this year I will be teaching AP Environmental Science and Chemistry. In addition to teaching I am also the Head Student Council Sponsor and co-sponsor the Science Competition Team. I have a B.A. in Biological Sciences from the Univeristy of Southern Illinois Carbondale and a M.A. in Teacher Leadership from the University of St. Francis. On this page you can find information for the classes I teach, as well as Student Council.
