Welcome to Coach Rush's 7th grade TX History class.

I am so thrilled to be teaching at Waller Jr. High. Waller runs deep in my blood. My first stint in Waller was in Kindergarten where I attended Holleman Elementary for one year, I moved back to Waller in 6th grade where I attended Schultz Middle School (back when it was a 5th and 6th-grade campus), Waller Jr. High, and then graduated from Waller High School in 2006.

I have a bachelors degree in Advertising/Communications with a minor in Political Science from Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

I started my career off working in advertising for various agencies and CBS Television. After 5 years in the "real world" I decided I wanted to do something more meaningful with my life and worked on my teaching certification. I started teaching in 2015 and I have taught history at both the 7th and 8th grade level with the majority of my years in 8th grade U.S. History. 

My goal for my classes is to build meaningful relationships with my students while getting them ready for the next level and eventually adulthood. This age is the most influential part of young students life. This is where students start forming the habits and attitudes that will follow them for the rest of their lives. This year we are going to have fun, we're going to learn, and we're going to get each and every student to reach their potential.
