Welcome to 7th Grade Science!
My name is Brett Hotchkiss and I am very excited to be starting my 3rd year of teaching at West Ridge Middle School! I am from Philadelphia, PA and graduated from Penn State University where I received a degree in Secondary Education with Biology as well as a minor in Psychology. After graduating from college, I packed my bags and moved to Austin, TX! What seemed like a very impulsive move ended up being the best decision I have ever made. I absolutely love working in such a supportive and inclusive community. I am a huge science nerd who is also passionate about health, fitness, and my faith. Besides teaching science, I also coach track in the Spring through WRMS, girls lacrosse through the Westlake Girls Lacrosse League, and field hockey through the Lone Star Field Hockey club.
