I think a teacher should be a role model and leader of youth who deeply cares about the academic and social/emotional well-being of their students.” 

Austyn’s Story

Why Math 

Math is like a language and I love learning and using the language of math to solve problems.

Professional Experience

During his undergraduate studies, Austyn taught math in the Mississippi Delta at a summer program modeled after the 1960s Freedom Schools.

Austyn will begin his first year of teaching at Biloxi High School during the 2022–2023 school year.
