About Me

My name is Joseph Fincher. I began my teaching career in teh 2010-11 school year with Goose Creek CISD in Baytown, Texas. I was privileged to work for that district for three years, until I joined the Houston ISD family for the 2013-14 school year. I have been teaching at Stephen F. Austin High School since that time. It has been my great honor to see the students that have entered my classroom leave with a better understanding of the English language, reading, and writing, when they leave my class.


This is my goal, each year - to ensure that my students are better prepared for their future courses, whether they are moving on to another grade level in high school or off to a college or university. I endeavor to make sure taht each student leaves my classroom with the skills he/she will need to communicate the wonderful ideas and unique perspectives they bring in written and spoken form.


It is my hope that each of my student's parent(s)/guardian(s) take advantage of the "open door" policy I hold for my classroom. If at any time you have a question or concern for your student's performance in my classroom, please do not hesitate to contact me. You may do so via email at jfincher@houstonisd.org or by calling the school at (713) 924-1600.


I look forward to a wonderful school year, and I hope that, together, we can make sure that each student reaches his/her fullest potential.
