Hello! My name is Andy Bayadsy, and this is my second year teaching at CRCA. I grew up in Bastrop, graduating from BHS in 2003. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Texas at Austin, while at the same time subbing for Elgin ISD. I knew I wanted to be a teacher and went on to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching from Hamline University.
My previous experience includes teaching at Community School of Excellence, a K-12 charter school in St. Paul, Minnesota that served the community’s Hmong population. I also taught in Elkhart at a rural Title I middle school. I consider myself lucky to be able to settle down in my hometown. I’m particularly excited about literacy, and can’t wait to begin incorporating digital texts and analysis into our writing this year.
