Welcome to Mr. VanWees's webpage!
Welcome! This will be my 3rd year at Akins and 5th year in education overall!
I was born in Guatemala and grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I received my Bachelor's degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology as well as my Master's in Educational Studies from the University of Michigan: Ann Arbor. In my time outside of school, I enjoy playing violin and guitar as well as other various instruments with several bands/musicians here in Austin and beyond!
My teaching experience includes time spent in the Ann Arbor Public School District as a 9th grade Biology student teacher, the Grand Rapids Public School district as a full time 8th grade Science, Forensics/Meteorology, and Anatomy/Physiology teacher, and here at Akins as a Biology and Environmental Systems teacher.
