Mr. Costin has been a full-time teacher at Meridian since the 2014-15 academic year. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Stephen F. Austin State University, and is certified to teach secondary Sciences, Social Studies, and Technical Applications. His decision to become a teacher, after a long career in the private sector, came about as a direct result of his exposure to I.B. philosophy while creating a short documentary video for a Texas IB conference. Mr. Costin believes that finding connections between various disciplines provides the relevant context needed in order to motivate and challenge today’s students. He is delighted to teach secondary Design, as it provides the opportunity to make those connections by allowing students an opportunity to extend their learning across multiple disciplines.
