"Meet the Teacher" / "Greenback Night" Video: Introducing Mr. Brower (opens shared video in new window)

Welcome students, parents, and other community members!  Brower here, and I will be teaching regular (on-level) English 3 and English 4 at LEE High School this 2020-2021 school year.  While I am a new hire to the district this year, I'm not new to this in other ways:
a) I grew up in this district (Castle Hills --> Nimitz --> ISA/Lee), and
b) I have been teaching for a decade, with experience across all four years of high school English core classes and electives.

I'm excited to be back in NEISD, back in the classroom (albeit virtually!), and back to guiding students through better understanding.

2000-2004 -- I.S.A. (Distinguished Diploma)
2004-2008 -- UT Austin (B.A. English / History double major)
