About Me

Greeting students and parents!
This will be my second year with Canyon Ridge Middle School, but sixth as an educator. As a native Pennsylvanian, I am still adjusting to the Texan ways and the heat. I bring to the classroom a passion for professional and creative writing, as I have years of experience in both. I have coached basketball for several years and believe that I am also a coach to ELA students, helping them refine reading, writing, and presentation skills that will help them be effective communicators in their personal, professional, and academic futures.

Feel free to contact me at brad.hess@leanderisd.org with any questions you may have. All of my courses will utilize Google Classroom applications, so I will not be updating this web page with current class content, but instead posting all course materials on Google Classroom. Encourage your student to share their Google Classroom projects and assignments with you, so that you can actively be a part of their 8th grade learning community.
