We are pleased to announce that Scott Basgall will be joining our staff next year! He will primarily be teaching Elementary PE. We are blessed to have him join our staff, he is already a part of our St. Joe’s community!

Scott Basgall is thrilled to be joining the teaching staff at St. Joseph Catholic School as a physical education teacher for the elementary grades. Scott comes from a background of teaching high school Special education mathematics previously in Colorado and Washington state.  During his time as a full-time parent, he discovered his passion for physical education while building an active lifestyle and coaching sports with his 3 children – Henry (6th), Annika (4th), and Heidi (K).  As a parent volunteer, his favorite activities have been P.E. volunteering and the Fun Run.  Scott earned his Teacher Certificate at Metropolitan State College of Denver and more recently earned a Master’s in Exercise Science from Liberty University and a Graduate Certificate in Health & Physical Education from Eastern Washington University. He has a true passion for all things athletic and believes it is never too late to learn something new, even learning to play hockey as an adult! (ouch!)  Scott firmly believes in creating a positive, safe, and fun learning environment for children of all abilities.   Scott feels grounded and supported by his Catholic faith and feels called to help students discover their own God given talents and abilities and build confidence and mental and physical resilience.  Scott and his family are parishioners at Our Lady of the Rosary in Southeast Boise. He enjoys pursuing various outdoor activities with his wife, Ingrid Lundgren, and their 3 children, especially skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and camping.
