Our Schools:

 

Greetings,


If you are a parent, or a future student, I am very happy you have stopped by to read my page.  My name is Joseph and this coming school year will be my 12th year teaching in public education.  I am a graduate of Midwestern State University and Texas Bible College with a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Bachelors of Theology.  


This is my second year teaching with Northwest ISD.  I have spent most of my career in education teaching in the state of Texas.  I have spent two summers teaching and working with children and teachers in Singapore and Malaysia.  I love Asian culture, people, and food.  


I started teaching as a fifth and sixth grade Math teacher and have taught Math in some form or capacity for almost all of my 12 years of teaching.  I have worked with the Texas Education Agency in Austin, Texas to develop curriculum standards for Math and Science as well as worked on developing the STAAR test.   


Special Education has always been a passion of mine.  I worked as a Autism Specialist in my last district, conducting teacher trainings and workshops on inclusion for four years.  I have additional certifications that allow me to work with Special Education students in all grade and content areas.  


Six years ago some of my students wanted to begin writing and producing their own news broadcast at school.  We started working before and after school to develop a news program.  Our idea grew and our school eventually purchased us equipment and software to film, edit, and develop a broadcast. Our broadcast was even showcased by the United States Air Force in wishing well to troops stationed in the Middle East.  


I am currently the Journalism teacher at Tidwell Middle School.  I also teach sections of SSI Math for students who struggle or need additional assistance in Mathematics education.  Whatever capacity I will know you in, I look forward to building a relationship with you this year.  


Sincerely,


Joseph Ouellette
