Mr. Mike Dudas
Media Arts Coach/Lead Audio Video Production Teacher
I began my career in education in 2007 after a long career in Human Resources. For the first six years, I was a teacher and Magnet Coordinator at Stephen F. Austin HS in Houston. At that school, I taught Speech, Debate, Video Tech, and Broadcast Journalism. I also served as the campus' magnet coordinator for the school's Teaching Profession magnet program for two years. While at Austin HS, I was awarded the "Teacher of the Year" and district's "Debate Coach of the Year." In 2013, I worked for one year at Turner HS in the Pearland ISD. In 2014, I joined the Ball HS team. I have created several new programs and initiatives in the Media Arts Small Learning Community including Tor Nation Productions and K-TOR The Tornado. In 2017, I was awarded the Region V Magnet Schools of America Teacher of the Year. I was also recognized on Channel 11's "Great Day Houston." I enjoy creating new opportunities for my students!
