Mr. Scott Orth, Principal

I am originally from Upstate New York where I grew up on a dairy farm that my grandfather started in 1953.  I am a graduate of Syracuse University and Virginia Commonwealth University. I am currently working on my Doctorate in Educational Leadership and will graduate in May of 2019. 

 
This is my first year as principal. Previously, I  taught high school and elementary school for 10 years and was an assistant principal for five years. I am passionate about helping children grow into productive and respectful adults. 

 

Finally, I am a huge college basketball fan (Go Orange!) and love traveling when I have time. I am married with one son, Connor, who is in 2nd grade.

I am enthusiastic about the teaching and learning at Berkeley Elementary school going into my fifth year.  My aspiration is to improve classroom instruction for the academic success of all students! It is exciting to be a part of the Berkeley community establishing the conditions of an educational climate and cultivating a culture of parental involvement.  I am also the assistant principal at Chancellor Elementary so my time is split weekly. This is my seventeenth year in education as a creative leader.  Prior to Chancellor, I served as the Assistant Principal at Cedar Forest Elementary for three years and Riverview Elementary for a short time.  Previous to administration, I taught art at Lee Hill Elementary for eight years.  Receiving my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Mary Washington University and Bachelor degree from VA TECH University, I consider myself a life-long learner.  Preceding my educational career was my business career where building relationships has been at the center of what I do.  My enjoyment at home includes: my family, son, daughter, grandson and friends as we do fun things together, travel and love creative activities.
