Ms. Scotia Bruijn

Welcome! This is my eighth year at Renaissance and tenth year teaching. Before coming to Renaissance, I taught one year at a charter school in Nampa and then spent one year living in Northern Spain, teaching English. Once I came back from Spain, I was lucky enough to join the Voyagers!

I have taught a variety of subjects here at RHS including Spanish I-II, IB Ab Initio Spanish, Ceramics, Design, Drawing, and IB SL World Arts and Cultures. This year I am excited to focus on Spanish II, Design, and Ceramics (I, II, & Advanced)!

  • In my free time, I love creating my own artwork (painting, visual journals, etc.), traveling, playing soccer, and trying to learn new languages!
