With the end of the school year right
around the corner, I would like to ask our par-
ents/guardians to encourage their students to
buckle down and finish strong in their classes.
Our state assessments in Biology and Algebra
One are scheduled for the first week of May
and Saturday and after
school tutorials will be availa-
ble to help students prepare
for these important ex-
ams. Students can talk with
their teachers to sign up to
Last month, our main
campus counselors met with
each student to complete
their course requests for
next year. If you have ques-
tions regarding the classes

Congratulations Ms. Shelby and
A PUBLICATION FOR ELSIK NINTH GRADE CENTER
My name is Bresean Andre’
Cockrell and I was born and raised right
here in Houston, TX. I grew up in a single
-parent home in the Sunnyside area of
Houston. My mother, who is now retired,
was an elementary school teacher and is
the reason for my early passion and in-
spiration for education.
I graduated as salutatorian from
Evan. E. Worthing Sr. High School in the
Mighty Colts Class of 2000. Two days
after graduating from high school, I be-
gan college at Texas Southern Universi-
ty in pursuit of a degree in mathematics.
Amidst several life challenges and
changes, I was forced to drop-out of
college in 2005 to help support my fami-
ly. In the Fall of 2009 I was able to
return to college and finish my bache-
lor’s degree in the Spring of 2011.
My philosophy of teaching is
quite simple; my job here is not to fix
children, because they are not broken.
My job is to meet students where they
are, accept them for whom they are
and inspire them to be better than
they already are. This is done by forg-
ing meaningful relationships with the
students, sharing my passion for math-
ematics and helping to support their
growth and development on their way
to become productive citizens in our
Ms. Green’s ESL class partici-
pated in the Read Around The
Planet program. They were
matched with a school in Ne-
braska. Her students per-
formed a puppet show, a fash-
ion show, a cooking segment,
and a parade of countries for
the school in Nebraska.
