My teaching and football coaching career began in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 2007 within three years, after moving to New Orleans, I was named 2010 Louisiana Scholastic Reading Teacher of the Year. By 2014, I was recruited to teach at Dallas ISD's prestigous Yvonne A. Ewell Townview High School becoming the first African-American to teach both Law, at the Harold 'Barefoot' Sanders, Jr. Law Magnet, and History, at the School of Business and Managment. There I produced programs for Hispanic Heritage and African-American History months inviting over thirty professionals, professors, artists, pilots, CEOs, and the like to roundtable discussions and presentations discussing, with our students, their arduaous trek through various professions and ultimately their overdue success.
In 2016, I was given the opportunity to coach Quarterbacks at Bryan Adams High School where we finished with over 5,000 yards of total offense, a First Team All-District Quarterback, District Runner-up in 11-5A, and a 7-3 season record with a playoff birth versus Forney. I'd continue my teaching and coaching talents at W.H. Adamson High School in 2017 and 2018 finishing 5-5 and shy of a playoff birth in both season with one Second Team All-District Quarterback. Academically, I departed Adamson High School with my Juniors accomplishing a 100% passing rate on the US History STAAR Examination and my Sophomores accomplishing the same 100% passing rate, District Examination, in World History and fostering an educational field trip experience for our black and Hispanic students as they toured our nation's capital, Washington, D.C.
In late 2020, I was afforded the opportunity to teach at CEDAR HILL HIGH SCHOOL. I began in CHHS' Early College, Methods of Academic Progress and AP Seminar. And despite teaching a semester, nearly 50% passed their AP presentations, both single and group, in addition to their written examination, with a passing score of 3. Currently, I am in the History Department. Here, I currently teach AP US History and African-American History. I was named September 2021 Teacher of the Week nominated by Longhorn student-athletes.
The goal is always the same: "Coaching (Teaching) is a profession of love. You can't coach people unless you love them."-Coach Eddie G. Robinson, Grambling
