Scott Frazier is a professor of physical education and does some advising within the program. His teaching includes his specialties of assessment, secondary methods, organization and administration, and supervision of student teachers. He enjoys teaching the freshman introduction class and watching the new majors develop into mature role-models, confident in their knowledge of teaching practices, and highly sought-after for employment by the time they leave the program. He is very proud of all the UWSP alumni that are making a difference in K-12 schools across Wisconsin and the Midwest.
Frazier attended Manchester College in Indiana for his undergraduate degree, where he earned varsity letters in football and golf. He received a graduate assistantship to teach and coach at Northern Michigan University earning his master's degree in the process. After teaching and coaching for several years in Indiana, he returned to school full-time and completed his doctorate from Indiana University. He taught at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa before coming to Stevens Point in 1988.
He is very active in professional development and faculty governance at UWSP. He is currently serving as the treasurer and member of the Executive Committee of the Wisconsin Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. Frazier was the 2003-04 president of WAHPERD. On campus, he served as Vice-Chair of the Faculty Senate and is the CPS representative to the Academic Affairs Committee. In 2007-08, he will be working with the Rhinelander, Three Lakes, Northland Pines and Tomahawk school physical education programs districts to implement a 1.9 million PEP grant.
A former long distance runner, Frazier now enjoys biking, outside yard work and kayaking on his stretch of the Wisconsin River. He is hoping for lots of snow this winter so he can enjoy cross-country skiing at Standing Rocks County Park. Scott is married to Sharon and they reside in Stevens Point with their two cats, Snowflake and Gerdie.
