Scorgie is in her 16th year as a full-time professor at APU, where she has taught 18 courses for Advanced Studies, Teacher Education, Special Education, School Counseling, and the Master of Arts in Global Leadership. Over the past 12 summers she has taught graduate courses for APU in Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana, Lithuania, Papua New Guinea, Brazil, Chile, the Philippines, Ukraine, Switzerland, Haiti, Kazakhstan, and Alaska. The course she enjoys best is typically the one she is currently teaching—with special affinity to Advanced Educational Psychology and Capstone Research. Her passion is to mentor M.A. students toward becoming collaborative, empathic, transdisciplinary, teacher-researcher professionals, as these things are essential to meeting the challenges of 21st-century classrooms.
