• Craig "Mr. CJ" Jaris

    Looking forward to an amazing year!

    I've spent most of my adult life championing positive change, in part by harnessing technology where it enables us all to accomplish more. Change agent, or chief instigator, are two labels that suit me well. As a dad and grandfather, I enjoy continually learning while encouraging those around me to pursue lifelong learning too.

    Having been a substitute teacher earlier this year spanning pre-k, middle school and ending the school year with ten weeks as a Georgetown High School substitute, I'm thrilled to be back among the students and staff here on Austin Ave. I'll be working with students from 9th through 12th grade. 

    The media-centric courses are immersive, students will need to take them 'in order' as outlined in the GISD Secondary Course Guide.

    Students will be working both independently and in groups on many activities. In addition to the classroom-based work, there is mandatory time outside of the classroom for projects and assignments on location. Sports, Performing Arts, G My Ride are just a few of the programs we'll be working on.
