Jackson, Tamilynn

I am and Oregon girl in a Texas world! I teach hands-on science to students ranging from 3 year old to 5th grade. I started teaching nine years ago at Independence Elementary in Lewisville ISD. I have a fun, loving husband and four beautiful, intelligent children. I am very involved in the community with a Girl Scout troop of 33 girls and a Cub Scout Tiger den of 11 boys. I enjoy connecting with the needs of my students and helping to enrich their lives. Science knowledge is important but I truly feel like a teacher when I teach someone to swim, teach them to speak up and advocate for themselves, or guide them to advance their learning in a new direction.

Victor Bravo

Victor Bravo is a 5th Grade science teacher at Stonewall Jackson Elementary School in Dallas ISD, where he has taught for 14 years. At Stonewall Jackson the last four years, he has built a science program that incorporates hands-on experiments, the outdoor lab—the school’s well established garden and wild scape, journaling, and an annual fall trip to Camp Grady Spruce at Possum Kingdom Lake. Here the students spend four days connecting Life and Earth science concepts learned in the classroom to the real world. Another ongoing project includes monitoring weekly energy production from the campus’ solar panel, which is mounted on top of the classroom portable. Every day he guides 80 students to an understanding and hopeful appreciation of how science makes the world better. He was the Teacher of the Year at Stonewall in 2014-2015.

He is married to a teacher, and their daughter also teaches. Two wonderful grandchildren are the seeds of the future!
