Mr. Denis Scannell
LuHi Role: Teacher (Government, Freshman Seminar), Girls Varsity Lacrosse coach, Middle School Flag Football coach; joined the LuHi Faculty in 2004
Education: Stony Brook University, BA in Social Sciences; Dowling College, Master of Science in Secondary Education; Xavier University, Master of Science in Coaching and Athlete Development; Long Island University, School Leadership
What I love about my role: I love the opportunity to delve into the learning process with our freshman and how it can help them achieve in their other courses. Teaching government to seniors is an opportunity to dive deep into topics and issues that they will help solve in their post-LuHi lives
Other professional experience: Public school teacher, Associate Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach at Suffolk Community College
Hobbies: Lacrosse, Surfing, Reading and Writing
Family: I am the proud husband to Colleen, and dad to Liam (13) and Mia (11) as well as Sherlock the dog, campus cats turned pets Blake and Everest, Gecko-Bruce, Snail-Snaily, and probably another animal procured after publication.
What I love most about LuHi: The mission of LuHi is about more than grades, awards, subjects, and transcripts. It is about the development of the whole person and their relationship to God, the world, their country, their community, and their family.
