Hello, my name is Amber Wolf and I will be new at ACS this year teaching some high school math and art classes. I grew up in a small town north of Dallas, went to Abilene Christian University and Midwestern State University. I have a degree in art, which is my true passion, but I also love to teach math! I have taught math 6-8 grades, algebra 1, pre-cal, and some art classes. But, I took this past year off to stay home with my newborn son. I am married to my amazing husband who gave me two wonderful stepdaughters, 3 and 11, and we also have a one-year-old son. We just moved to the area earlier this year and got a little fixer upper house that keeps us busy, along with all the animals we have on our “farm.”
My interests include video games, reading, anything artistic, and spending time with my family. I always enjoy learning something new or trying a new skill.
I grew up going to church and was involved in a lot of activities. I am so excited for this opportunity to work in a Christian atmosphere and to be able to share and help others in their faith and educational journeys. My favorite person in the Bible is Esther for her courage and ability to help others. “Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created,” Esther 4:14.
I’m Brenda Jasper and this is my fifth year at ACS, where I teach junior high science and technology classes.
I am originally from Brownsville, Texas, but have lived in Brazoria County for the past 30 years. Shortly after graduating from Texas Tech University in 1983 with a Bachelor of Business Administration, God had other plans for me. I returned to college to study education and began teaching in 1989.
I have been an educator for 31 years. Eleven of those years I taught 5th and 6th grade in Brazoria, where I was teacher of the year in 1994. In 2000, I made the move to Stephen F. Austin STEM Academy in Jones Creek, where my son was entering kindergarten. There, I taught 4th, 5th and 6th grade during my 16 years there. Teaching junior high students was a new experience for me, but I am so happy God gave this opportunity!
I have one child, Evan, who recently graduated from Texas A&M. Whoop! I enjoy gardening, woodworking, traveling, and trying out new Mexican food dishes. I attend Columbia United Methodist Church in West Columbia.
I love teaching at ACS where the students, parents, and staff are like a family. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to teach your child. I look forward to another fantastic year!
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
