Mr. Charles Vochatzer
This is my eighth year at LEISD. Previously, I taught math and coached in Georgetown ISD. After serving as a minister (youth, education, music, children, senior adults) for 25 years, I decided it was time to do something else. After deciding to continue to work with youth, but in a different setting, I entered the alternative teacher certification program at LeTourneau University, Austin. During that time and for 8 years, I also worked for Best Buy as a GeekSquad Agent.
My wife, Linda, and I have been married for 42 years. We have two grown children, Paul and Brittani. We also have five grandchildren, Madison, Nicholas, Jack, Henry and Matthew.
Originally, I'm from Kansas City, MO (GO Super Bowl Winners KC CHIEFS & ROYALS!). I've also lived in Georgia, South Carolina, Louisiana, and Kentucky. This is my third trip to Texas. After living 15 years in Pflugerville, we moved to this area. We look forward to many great years of living and teaching in this area.
My first 8 years of teachering was at Forbes MS, Georgetown, I taught classes for on-grade-level 8th grade math, 7th PAP, Algebra I, and intervention classes. I’ve taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade students, but mostly at the 8th grade level, including Algebra I for 8th grade. All of my life experiences, whether as a minister, coach, home improvement hobbies, and more, will benefit your Middle School students. We (parent/student/teacher) will make this journey together to make sure that your child not only receives what they need for Middle School, but success in life, too.
My six years at Prestwick was mostly spent teaching 6th and 8th grade students. Year one was totally 6th grade PAP curriculum. Year two and three brought about a change to my schedule as I moved to teaching on-level 8th grade and 6th grade Compacted Math. Year four and five, I continued with Compacted Math, but added the 8th grade HS Geometry PAP class. I finished out year six with CM, 7th ADV and Honors Geometry.
This year, 21-22, my second year at Strike Middle School will be spent with 6th grade Compacted Math and 8th grade Honors Geometry students.
I have been blessed to have each of the 6th Compacted Math groups twice, once as a 6th grade then back in 8th grade. It's nice to see their growth and they can't tell me their teacher didn't teach them that.
You may call me Mr V, but my last name is pronounced Vo - chat - zer. I have aunts, uncles, cousins that all pronounce the name different. Thanksfully, my dad made it simple.
