Teach Texas History

Although relatively new to the public school system and teaching high school students, Robert has spent over 20 years instructing and educating young adults, both in and out of uniform, about a variety of technical and academic subjects. In performing face-to-face instruction in a variety of challenging environments he's learned, perhaps more than anything else, that setting the example is paramount in capturing the attention and respect of his students. Robert therefore strives to lead a lifestyle, both in and out of the classroom, that emphasizes intellectual, physical, and spiritual wellness. He works hard to instill these virtues in all of his students, while celebrating their individual differences, to shape them into solid citizens, tolerant thinkers, and competent leaders for tomorrow.

By extension, educators must also venerate the related social sciences, which complement and enhance many of the cognitive processes commonly used in other disciplines, such as mathematics, the performing arts, or any number of the physical sciences.
