Mr. Russell Baskin

I am excited for a new school year and the learning opportunities presented at the JSTEM Academy this year.

Here is a little bit about myself. I graduated from Sandra Day O’Connor High School here in San Antonio in 2007. I went to Abilene Christian University where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics for Secondary Education in 2012.

I then moved to Tyler, TX where I began my teaching career at John Tyler High School teaching a variety of mathematics subjects from 2012 to 2014. I began to pursue a Master’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Tyler, where I also had to opportunity to teach Intro to Statistics and College Algebra. In 2015 I moved down here to San Antonio to start working at the JSTEM Academy. I am currently in my 5th year with the JSTEM Academy where I taught 7th grade math for one year and currently teaching my fourth year of Algebra 1. After school you can find me coaching FTC robotics, tutoring, or hosting the strategic games club.

I look forward to a great year and can’t wait to meet you this coming school year.
