About Me

Happy 2020-2021 school year!! My name is Jake Rutan and I teach TAP Bio, AP Environmental Science, and am the Varsity first assistant/JV head coach for the boy's basketball program here at THS. 
 
I grew up in Cillicothe, IL and went to Loras College in Dubuque, IA to play basketball and study Biology for Secondary Education. Straight out of college I moved down to Houston and taught Pre-AP Bio, on-level Bio, and Co-taught Bio 3 years at Davis 9th grade in Greenspoint. I began teaching/coaching at TJHS in 2018, before ending up at THS. 
 
I look forward to using the strategies that I have learned and developed to encourage the critical thinking/problem solving skills in all of my students.
