Mr. Scott Bixler (Mr. B.)

Hello, my name is Mr. Bixler and I teach 8th grade Health and Physical Education

In my past life, I was employed by the United States Forest Service for slightly over 40 years.  Upon my retirement in 2016, I immediately became a substitute teacher with Missoula County Public Schools. 

I love working with middle school students, they are bright, funny, and keep me on my toes.  In this new world of online learning, I am constantly seeking ways of increasing my technological skills and increasing student engagement.  

I was born and raised in Iowa, moving to Helena, Montana when I was a junior in high school (Go Bengals).  I graduated from the University of Montana with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education, subsequently earned a Master's degree in Business Administration in 1992.

I have been married to my wife Jan for almost 46 years.  Our three children, Andy, and twins Kristy and Lindsay all graduated from MCPS and now work in Helena, Missoula, and Crescent City, CA.
