Scott Nipper, M.Ed., BCBA

Chrysalis Program Director
Director's Team

Scott Nipper graduated from Texas A&M in 1992 with a BBA degree in Production/Operations Management. After a few years of self-discovery, a mentor inspired him to make a career change and he completed alternative certification to become a special education teacher in 1997. Scott received a master’s degree in special education with an emphasis in autism intervention from the University of North Texas. While researching model programs, he discovered The Monarch School, where he spent five years as a teacher at the Apprentice Level. He left to complete a clinical internship to become a board certified behavior analyst. For the last year he has worked as a private behavioral consultant in natural settings and as a social coach for after-school social groups and camps.

As a learner, parent, teacher, and behavioral scientist, Scott appreciates that the context of learning is as important as the skills learned. He is inspired by the enriched physical and social environment Monarch provides faculty and students. Scott enjoys the outdoors, triathlon training, traveling, church volunteering, and spending time with his family. He likes the Mother Teresa quote “there are no great works, only small works with great love.”
