Science Teacher

Jodie Deinhammer has been teaching science in Coppell ISD for over 20 years. She was the Texas Region 10’s Secondary Teacher of the Year for 2015, and was the Texas Medical Association Texas Science Teacher of the Year in 2013. She is also an Apple Distinguished Educator.

As an Apple Distinguished Educator, Mrs. Deinhammer works with teachers around the globe to help creatively integrate technology into the classroom. She encourages educators and administrators to create classrooms that allow students to investigate and address real world issues and create innovative solutions.

Mrs. Deinhammer believes that students should have a voice in their education and that schools need to drastically change to meet the needs of our changing world. We should challenge our students with authentic real world issues and give them a platform to make a difference in society. We shouldn't focus on preparing our kids for what is next, but instead helping them make a contribution each and every day.
