Mrs. Kara Burrous
Welcome to AP Biology, Chemistry and Pre-AP Chemistry. I have been an Austin Bulldog since the Fall of 2005 and I couldn't imagine teaching anywhere else. My primary goal is to grow your students into critical thinkers and develop a curiosity for the world around them. I grew up in Houston and after high school I studied biology and chemistry at Stephen F. Austin State University. In 2000, I began my teaching career in East Texas and moved back to the Houston area in 2003 with my family. During my years, I have taught biology, pre-AP biology, chemistry in addition to the courses I am currently teaching. In 2010, I received my Masters in Science, Science Education from Montana State University. I have a passion for science education and find new opportunities to grow professionally. In my free time I love spending time in Galveston, enjoying the outdoors wherever I am, listening to music, traveling, and spending time with my family.
