Teacher

Canyon Vista Middle School

Hello! I’m Austin Boriack, native Texan and have lived in Austin, Houston, and Dallas. I currently live in Austin, TX with my husband and senior lab and am an 8th grade science teacher at Canyon Vista Middle School. I received a BS in biology with a minor in chemistry from Texas State University in 2011.

I have a strong passion in nurturing, serving, and inspiring our English Language Learners to reach their full potential in K-12 schooling. Additionally, I am working to build my capacity to serve as a future instructional leader for ESL instruction and specifically have the opportunity to work on how it can be incorporated into the general education classroom in all subjects.
