Mr. Mark Fritzenschaft

Dean of Instruction



My name is Mark Fritzenschaft and I have been in education for nearly a decade! I received my Bachelor’s degree from the Honors College at the University of Houston in History and Political Science. I then spent the next few years teaching English, debate, academic writing, history, and math in South Korea, Houston, and Nashville. While in Nashville, I completed my M.Ed. at Vanderbilt University (Anchor Down!) and discovered a new-found love for hot chicken. Back in Houston, I completed my M.B.A. at Rice University before starting my doctorate in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies back where I started, the University of Houston. I am very excited to serve the community here at Mickey Leland as we work towards preparing your scholars for whatever the world has in store for them!
