About Mr. Chism

This will be my 15th year in Education, my 12th year teaching and I am really excited about teaching Robotics in to our Middle School 6th, 7th and 8th graders this year at Compass Academy Charter School.

I have been married to my wife, Stacy, for over 20 years and we have 2 boys, Zane who will be a 7th grader here at Compass Academy and a wonderful 7 year old that will be a 2nd grader here at Compass Academy as well.
When I am not at Compass Academy, I really enjoy watching Braves baseball, Dallas Stars or Los Angeles Kings Hockey, Jackalopes Hockey or any Harry Potter movie I can get.

I was born in Englewood, CO but was primarily raised in Odessa, TX.   I spent my sophomore and junior years in Dalton, GA and that was an awesome time for me.  I graduated high school from Permian High School here in Odessa, TX.  I graduated from Odessa College with my Associates of Art and from South Plains College with an Associates in Computer Information Systems.  I then graduated from The University of Texas of the Permian Basin with my bachelors in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics.
To teach in Texas, I have a Generalist Certification to teach Core Subjects grades 4-8.  I also have my Tech Apps EC-12 Certification as well.  I am also certified to teach Pre-AP classes as well as GT classes.
Professionally, I have my CompTIA A+ certification and I also have my MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) certification as well.
I have spend the past 12 years teaching 7th grade Science, 7th Grade Texas History,  and Technology Applications.  I have a strong passion for helping students learn.
I know that everything happens for a reason and I am super excited for this opportunity to help Compass Academy.
