Staff Spotlight: Kendra Ward

At Austin Public Schools, our mission is to inspire, empower, and accelerate every one of our learners, and we know that the only way for us to reach this goal is through the efforts of all our incredibly hard-working staff.  

In this week’s Staff Spotlight, we’re highlighting Ellis Middle School math teacher Kendra Ward.

"My daughter comes home talking about how Ms. Ward is the best teacher she has ever had in her life. She is super fun, but when it’s time to do work, you are doing it. It’s amazing how well she’s helped my daughter understand math. She’s like a math hero!"
