Mr. Scott Wm. Bumbaugh

Hallo!  My name is Scott Bumbaugh and I have the great pleasure of teaching German 1, Pre-AP German 1, German 2, Pre-AP German 2, Pre-AP German 3, and AP German 4 this year.  Although it might seem like a crazy schedule, I am very excited about it. 

Contact information:  

My school phone number is 936-435-6100 ext. 2007.

My school e-mail is sbumbaugh@huntsville-isd.org.

My conference period is 8th period (2/50-3.40).  I am also available for a parent-teacher conference before school and after school except on  mornings, when I have duty.

I will do my best to send the parents a daily e-mail with the day's homework (if any) and the dates of any up-coming projects, quizzes, and tests.  I will post all class notes and homework assignments on my web page.  Each course has its own web page.  

A little about me:  I was born in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and am very proud of my roots.  My father served in the U.S. Army as a medic, and we lived in many different states (Pennsylvania, Maryland, Missouri, Colorado, and Oklahoma) and countries (Germany).  I truly feel blessed to have had this opportunity, because it has enriched my life tremendously.  I learned German in Germany, where my family lived for five years.  Following my graduation from Eisenhower High School in Lawton, Oklahoma, I spent my freshman year at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.  I then served a two year church mission in Kobe, Japan, which was another tremendous experience for me.  Upon returning from Japan, I moved to Huntsville, Texas, where I attended Sam Houston State University, graduating with a major in German and a minor in Spanish.  I then completed my Master's in Political Science at Sam Houston State.

While here in Huntsville, I met my then future wife in 1982.  We just celebrated our 38th anniversary this past June.  We  have two wonderful sons, both of whom are graduates of Huntsville High School.  I am grateful for the solid education and the great extra-curricular opportunities my sons had here at Huntsville High School.  My oldest son graduated from Sam Houston State, and completed his Master's degree at Texas A&M University in finance and accounting.  My youngest son graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in electrical engineering.  Both my sons are married and I have the five most darling grandsons on the planet!

Why do I teach?  I knew that I wanted to be a teacher when I was in the fourth grade.  As I was growing up, I had wonderful teachers who made a difference in my life, and I want to do so in the lives of my students.  This will be my 28th year at HHS.  I love teaching and interacting with youth, and feel so blessed to have been able to teach here in HISD.  I truly work with wonderful colleagues and am grateful for the excellent guidance from our administrators and superintendant.
