Mr. Scutari was born and raised in Union, New Jersey. He attended Kean University where he received his bachelor's degree in elementary/middle school education with a concentration in earth science (geoscience). As a student himself, he was always curious about the natural world and wanted to find answers to his questions. Mr. Scutari is committed to giving students the tools to help them develop and answer their own questions, as well as help students become advocates for change. Throughout his time at New LA, Mr. Scutari has developed inquiry-based, hands-on programs that allow students to think critically and realistically about different topics. He believes learning should be interactive, collaborative, and without a doubt, FUN!!
