Hello, I'm Mr. Solis!
Welcome to the Nolan Ryan JH Longhorn Choir! My name is Howard Solis and I serve as the choir director at Nolan Ryan Junior High. I graduated from the University of Houston in 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education with a Vocal Concentration. This is my fifth year on staff at Nolan Ryan and I am looking forward to a great year working alongside all of you!
When I am not teaching, my wife and I enjoy spending our free time outdoors tending to our 4 chickens, watching Houston Cougar Football (Go Coogs!) and playing with our two cats, Annie and Ellie.
This summer I took some time and learned all about Google's tools for education and received my Level 1 Google Certification! If you need help working with Classroom, Slides, Docs, etc., please reach out and ask! I'll do my best to help or point you in the right direction.
How to find the correct Google Classroom code!
Google Classroom Codes can be found in the "For Students" menu page corresponding with the class period on your schedule. If you are an AVL student and your schedule lists your choir class as 9th or 10th period then find your class by using the corresponding skyward course name.
For example, If I am an AVL student and my schedule says "Choir Beg Girls 6" during Period 9, then I will go to the "For Students" menu and look for my course name rather than my class period. If this is a little confusing then please feel free to email Mr. Solis at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive clarifying information. We are all in this together and I hope to help guide you through this process.
Remember that in order to join the Google Classroom, you must be logged in using your Alvin ISD student account ending in @students.alvinisd.net If you need help with login information please use this form sent out by Mrs. Marquez.
