Math and Science Spanish

I graduated from the University of Houston with a bachelor’s degree in Bilingual Education/ESL Endorsement, a Master’s degree in Education-Curriculum & Instruction, and a Certified Teacher Technologist EC-12.  I taught in a 2nd grade Bilingual classroom for many years where my love for science began through the HU-LINC Science Lead Teacher program, eventually becoming a Master Science Lead Teacher. My teaching career highlighted when I was nominated and awarded Houston I.S.D. Teacher of the year.  The following year I taught in a K-5 technology lab, then a fifth-grade science lab, and eventually taught science for all grade levels on campus.  I went on to work as a science specialist for the East region assisting teachers and administrators in planning, development, collecting and interpreting data, as well as implementing effective instructional and teacher training in schools and other departments.  I returned to the science lab as a Teacher Specialist at Bonham Elementary where I experienced working with 2-5 grade students in the science lab.  Currently, I am teaching Science and Math to fifth grade students at Burnet Elementary.

I’m Andrew Rodriguez and I teach 5th grade English and Language Arts (ELA).  This will be my 17th year teaching at Burnet!  Time does indeed fly! I love our campus and our school community!

I am married with three children.  I love to spend time with my family, explore nature, and barbeque!  I’m a product of HISD schools and the East End.  I attended DeZavala Elementary, Deady Middle School, and graduated from Milby High School.  While in high school and throughout college, I had one of the coolest jobs ever.  I was a batboy for the Houston Astros!  I was able to play baseball with the pros and I got paid to do it! 

I graduated from the University of Houston and I am currently working on my master’s degree from the University of St. Thomas.  College has played important role in my life.  My years in school have helped me find my gift and purpose in life.   I found a passion for education and literature.  My purpose is to share my passion for literature with my classes. I hope to teach my students to think critically and inspire them to make this world a better place.
