Brandon Pleasants

HELLO!

My name is Brandon Pleasants and I have the pleasure of teaching your student Math/Science this year! This will be my 11th year of teaching and my second here at Annie Purl. Prior to my move to Georgetown, my wife (Michelle) and I taught overseas for ten years. I've had the amazing opportunity to teach in such wonderful countries as Kazakhstan, Nigeria, and China. I met some awesome people and had some incredible adventures!! 

I graduated from Texas Tech University with my Bachelor's in Psychology and earned my teacher's certificate through Houston Tillotson University. I have taught numerous grade levels throughout my career, including 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and now 5th grade. Each presents its own unique challenges and rewards- all of which I relish. While my goal is obviously to teach your child the fundamental basics of math and science, it's much more than that. I want them to leave my classroom as a more complete person- both in and out of the classroom. I want to teach them how to think (critically and introspectively); to become better people (accepting of others' opinions and ideas); and for them to learn that it's OK to make mistakes (learning can be a messy process). 

Finally, I'm the proud father of 8yr. old twins, Jude and Zoe. We enjoy camping, watching American football, and eating at every Mexican food restaurant we can find in the greater Austin area!

It's truly a pleasure to be one of the guides in your child's educational career and I look forward to a great year to come!
