Scott Dirk B.

Around 16 I found, in our small town library, the book "Religions of the World" and it shook my foundations. For the first time it really hit home that I could find information and learn independently. This was the moment my library walls became the world. My career started a few years later when I was hired at that same place. 

My love for the library and learning has been constant through my journeys in theatre, travel and teaching and it is still one of my happiest places. When did the library walls become the the world for you?

Children's Librarian

Salt Lake City Public Library

Glendale Branch 2017 - ...
Glendale has kids from three neighboring elementary and middle schools that hang out until their parents get off work. This has been great opportunity for building relationships with regulars, and I've loved collaborating with a very involved team and learning from this diverse community. 

Foothill Branch 2013 - 2015 
At Foothill the families were mostly young, with baby and prek programs sometimes topping 100 attendees. The parents were very involved, and used a lot of readers advisory.

ESL Teacher

ILA Vietnam

Bien Hoa  2016 - 2017

ILA is such a great organisation, with regular celebrations and opportunities for further development. With them I earned my
CELTA Certification with
Young Learners extension.

I prepared and taught weekly lessons to children, middle grade, teen, and beginner adult classes, modifying and expanding source material. I really learned how to organize and use my resources!

Biodynamic Farm Intern

Vashon Island, Seattle

Greenman Farm 2016

This renewing summer had me listening to the cycle of a season, as I transplanted, cleared, covered, cared for and harvested various crops. Jasper, the owner and operator, handled the shifting needs with forethought and adjusted with ease when obstacles arose.

Guest Services

Woodland Park Zoo
Seattle 2015 - 2016
My earliest dream was to work at a zoo, and this trendsetter was a perfect match. Large regular crowds were a great opportunity to share a message of conservation, while being a first point of contact in emergencies and turning guest concerns into positive experiences. 

Utah Symphony | Utah Opera 
Salt Lake City 2009-2011
With a lot of phone service, this gave me an opportunity to share information however it's presented, and put people at ease quickly in moments of frustration. 

Utah Shakespeare Festival
Cedar City 2007 - 2009
This Tony winning company knows how to be welcoming and respond to the public. Keeping public areas nice has become second nature from my time there!

Actor

Southern Utah University 2004 - 2007
Snow College 2001 - 2004

Theatre gave me confidence, and lots of practice directing the interest of a group in an engaging way. Acting the role of Captain Hook, or Otto Frank, I've found a great joy in sharing stories of all sorts. 

New World Shakespeare 2012-2014
Salt Lake Shakespeare  2013
The Grand Theatre 2012
