Mr. Dean Bryson
New Tech Collinwood9th Grade Physical Science
Dean Bryson is in his fifth year of teaching ninth grade physical science at New Tech Collinwood High School. He is a proud graduate of Bowling Green State University and Howard University. For the past two summers, Dean has served as a corps member advisor for Teach For America’s Houston Institute, supporting and coaching brand new teachers. He implements project-based learning (PBL) and teaches standards through authentic-learning tasks. While there is often tension between PBL and standards-based instruction, Dean has learned to effectively embed standards within his projects without sacrificing data-driven instruction. Outside of his classroom, Dean advises the social justice club and the “BG Bros,” a male mentoring group at Collinwood.
