Scott Koh joined the Triangle education team in 2019 with over 25 years of Seattle-based experience in educational outreach and youth/adult programming and touring. Scott has a passion for inspiring young people through the arts, having worked in the non-profit arts sector in Seattle since arriving on the West Coast from Massachusetts 30 years ago. Scott brings a career-long focus on arts integration in the classroom, infusing existing curricula with dynamic instructional technique and inclusive learning strategies.
Scott holds a B.F.A. in Fine Arts from Boston University and is eager to share his passion and knowledge with diverse and underserved communities. His past work includes educational program management for the Seattle Repertory Theatre, the Seattle Children’s Theatre, and the Seattle Shakespeare Company. As an arts educator, he co-developed acclaimed programming, including Bringing Theatre into the Classroom (BTIC), an arts integration professional development model for educators, and the Teaching Artist Training Lab (TAT), a year-long intensive professional development opportunity for teaching artists state-wide.
Recently, he co-developed and piloted Rise Up, a trauma-informed professional development workshop for classroom teachers. Rise Up was launched nationally in the fall of 2019.
Scott spends most of his free time walking Greenlake, seeking out the best pan-fried noodles in Seattle, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest, including several favorite spots in Vancouver, B.C., and the Willamette Valley/coast of Oregon, hikes in the Cascades, and camping on the Olympic Peninsula.
