James Hsu

Fifth Grade Teacher

James Hsu Bio

My name is James Hsu, and I am extremely excited to be a 5th grade science teacher at Reuben Johnson Elementary.  I was born and raised in New York City, and I received my bachelor’s degree from New York University in Management and International Business.  My passion for teacher stemmed from my upbringing as a classical musician.  I began teaching the violin as a junior in high school and continued through college.  After graduation, I decided to pursue a career in education and spent time teaching for the Archdioceses of New York.  In 2005, I moved to Austin, TX to support my wife as she went to graduate school at the University of Texas and after a stop in Denver, CO, settled in Allen, TX in 2008.  Prior to RJE, I was in Coppell and Richardson ISDs.  I have three daughters, 10 year old twins and a 2 year old.
