Mr. Colton Chiasson
Hello Advantage Academy! My name is Colton Chiasson, and I am a first year teacher, both at Advantage Academy and in general. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of Houston - Downtown in December of 2018. I was inspired to teach by the numerous role models in my life who were teachers, such as my mother and many of her friends, and I enjoy few things more than the satisfaction of knowing that my teaching makes a difference in someone's life. I teach 8th Grade Math at GPE, as well as Pre-Calculus and Algebra II.
My favorite Pillar of Character is Humility. I believe to truly learn, one of the most important traits one must have is that they must be humble enough to admit that they need to learn and have room to grow. We all, each and every one of us, have room to grow and learn and evolve as people, and can all learn from one another no matter what our positions in life are. Being humble leaves us with a mindset that is receptive to learning new things and changing our minds, adapting to an ever changing world.
My greatest strengths, I feel, are empathy, humility (if it isn't ironic to say so myself), passion for the job, work ethic, and the genuine care I feel for helping the students I teach learn and better themselves for the future. If I had to pick a weakness, by contrast, it would be that I have a tendency to, as they say, "sweat the small stuff."
I hope everyone has an excellent year!
