I teach math at Infinity Early College High School in Porter, Texas and was named Teach of the Year for the 2018-2019 school year. I graduated from Austin College in 2003 with a BA in Mathematics and in 2004 with a MAT in Secondary Education.
I can attribute much of my success to the Austin College Teacher Program. The program enabled me to think clearly and deeply about all parts of education. This helped me to develop my own philosophy of teaching and gave me the skills to keep adapting as I gained more experience. I am confidently able to analyze what is happening in my classroom and design effective learning experiences which help students reach their full potential. No one is ever 100% ready for day one of his/her teaching career, but the ATP provided a solid foundation of knowledge and skills which has guided me on a rewarding path in education!
