Mr. Chris O'Donnell
In the classroom, I will be teaching 7th grade Texas History (2 Pre-AP/2 Regular). I will be coaching 7th and 8th grade football (traveling with the 8th grade on game days). In addition, I have been known to coach up a little 7th grade C Team basketball as well.
This will be my 14th year as a teacher/coach. I spent over 20 years in the corporate world of Engineering Management before finally figuring out what my true calling was and having the guts to pursue it. That experience has enabled me to bring a real world perspective to my teaching. I will certainly teach the state mandated requirements for 7th graders over the course of the year; however I consider a major part of my role as instructor to teach the students how to be productive citizens in our society. They will hear the phrase "mature, responsible young adults" often. We will frequently have mini-lessons built around accountability and consequences. The classroom environment will be as easy-spirited as the students will allow. I believe in having a good time provided that we meet our expectations.
I am very excited about this upcoming year and look forward to the time I get to spend with your student.
