Degrees and Certifications:
I have a bachelor's degree in Humanities from the University of Texas in Austin. I took two years of teacher certification classes at the University of Houston (Clear Lake campus). I am certified to teach Mathematics, English, Science, and Social Studies for middle school students. I am here early every day, so I can help students during morning tutorials from 8:00 until 8:30 any day except Monday, when I have morning duty. My students rarely seem to need tutorials, actually, but I can usually stay until 4:30 on any day except for Friday. If a student needs me to stay until 4:30, they need to let me know in advance (earlier in the day would be fine.)
Mr. Brett Cole
My name is Brett Cole. I am a 7th grade Advanced Language Arts teacher at LDMS. I have taught since 1993 or so, and this is the only school district where I have ever taught. I received my BA in Humanities at UT Austin in 1986. I had many other jobs before that, including experience as a semi-professional writer, warehouse worker, waiter, cutler (knife maker), antique car restorer, etc.
