Nancy Scott


Nancy Scott has been an Up With Kids! Director for 32 years. She is incredibly efficient as our Director of Operations and she is in charge of our successful teacher training program.

Nancy studied opera with a private Italian coach, Primo Puccinelli. She performed as a soloist for the international cast of Up With People as they toured the United States and South America for two years. She toured the country again as a member of the Chamber Singers from Pasadena College.

Nancy spent many years performing throughout southern California and recorded vocal demos for music arrangers and writers in the Los Angeles area. She enjoys singing with a local Gospel Choir in her spare time. It is still a thrill when a student tells her, “My Mommy was in your class when she was a little girl”. All her children and her older Grandchildren have participated and worked with her…You can say it is a “Family Affair”.

Miss Nancy loves kids, and her students adore her! She looks forward to another exciting year. “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” – Albert Einstein
