MEET MS. PASS

A Passionate & Caring Teacher

Adele Passovoy (Ms. Pass) graduated from UCLA and Pepperdine with a B.A. and an M.S. She was already teaching for the Los Angeles Unified School District before she completed her studies. During her tenure at LAUSD, Ms. Pass was elected department chair, she was a teacher mentor and a Science/Math Resource Specialist earning Excellence in Education commendations.


In 1993, Ms. Pass and her family, both bipeds and quadrupeds, moved to Austin, Texas. While waiting to be picked up by a school district, Ms. Pass became a contract science and math writer for Prentice Hall and Silver, Burdet and Ginn. In 1998, Ms. Pass became part of Round Rock ISD when she joined Round Rock High School as a biology teacher and freshman sponsor.


The following year, when her freshmen became sophomores, Ms. Pass moved with them to Stony Point High School as founding faculty. She continued as class sponsor until that group of students launched as Stony Point's first graduating class in 2002.


During her tenure at SPHS, Ms. Pass was awarded two Excellence In Education grants, was part of Cyberways and Waterways, and was twice accepted into the National Science Foundation's GK-12 program through the University of Texas.


In 2006, Ms. Pass joined the McNeil family to take over AP Biology and Pre-AP Biology.
