Principal for a Day is a project of DISD that brings community leaders into schools across the district. On October 10 we had our Principal for a Day: Shawn Scott.
Shawn Scott is native of Dallas, TX and attended Spence Middle School from 1989-1991. Currently he works as a Software Developer at Onsite Health Diagnostics, a health and wellness company in the Dallas area. Shawn began his career in computer programming at the age of 7 working on the most popular home computer at the time, the Tandy TRS-80. Prior to his current role, Shawn served at the Chief Technology Officer at Henry Health and VenueCenter, as well as the Founder and CEO of Hack My Future, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching youth computer literacy skills. He received his degree in Telecommunications Management from DeVry University and is an avid fan of local sports team and cooking.
Ms. Martin's AVID students were actively engaged in what Mr. Scott had to say about artificial intelligence.
