Hello students and parents! My name is Mitch Fairchild, and I teach Career & Technology, Graphic Design, and Yearbook at Farley Middle School.
A Little Bit About Me:
This is my 12th year in public education. I've been a football-basketball-volleyball coach, taught at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. The disciplines I've taught are: Technology, Science, Art, and Physical Education. I'm an international award winning technology teacher (Peterson Academic Symposium-2015) and was recognized by PBS as a leader in digital innovation (2016-2017). My students have been recognized as exceptional learners both locally and internationally. I expect a lot from my students, not because I'm "mean", but because my students are AWESOME!
I live in Round Rock with my beautiful wife and two awesome daughters. I love technology, old movies (pre-1959), and my main hobby is Barbecue (both perfecting it and competing with it).
Parents, If ever you have any questions, please let me know.
Students, your success is important to me, and a major tool for making sure you have access to all resources and information you need, is via this website. Look around and get comfortable with it, then use it wisely throughout the year.
