Hi! I'm Mr. Pratt! I am excited to be teaching at Scholar Academy. Here's a bit about myself:
I was born and raised in Davis County. I went to elementary school at Cook Elementary where I was a member of the Spectrum program, a program for gifted students. I took up many extracurricular activities through my schooling. I was a member of our football team as well as a two-time state placer in wrestling. Maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.9, I was awarded the Academic All-State my senior year. I graduated top 5% of my class from Clearfield High School in 2001.
I was an active member of the Boy Scouts of America. I spent a majority of my high school Mondays and several weekends throughout the year participating in scouting activities. I was able to achieve the highest rank of Eagle Scout.
Another pastime of mine was my involvement with a community theater, the Terrace Plaza Playhouse. I spent countless hours participating in more than fifty shows. A few of my favorite roles were Asher in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Daniel in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. With more than 20 years experience on the stage, I broadened my theatrical experiences by taking up the technical side of it as well. I was the adviser for the tech crew at my previous school and have also worked with Clearfield and Syracuse cities on a few of their productions.
I taught 6th grade for seven year at the Syracuse Arts Academy. During this time I met my beautiful wife who moved me up to Tooele to start a brand new life and adventure. I am excited to be working at Scholar academy and can't wait to get the new year started!
