Graduated summa cum laude- Texas Tech University Business School
BBA in Finance; Obtained law degree from Texas Tech University Law School
Although I teach high school world history, I also have a passion for math, finance, US history, and economics. I have a son in 7th grade, so I see how many of the topics are introduced and lead up to 8th grade history and 9th grade world history.
