Welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies
Hi, my name is Mr. Reyes, your Social Studies teacher. I am definitely looking forward to starting this new phase of this course which we call the "Flipped Classroom", where the student is expected to go over the information required for class at home so that the classroom experience is enhanced by working on mind challenging exercises during actual class time.
I am a proud native of the El Paso-Juarez area who graduated from Ysleta High School and went on to graduate from Texas Tech University with a BA degree in Anthropology, BA in Spanish and a Master of Business Administration Degree from Texas Tech University and Universidad Anahuac in Mexico City. After working more than 10 years in Banking and Investments, I realized that my true passion was to help people and therefore I decided to change careers and become a teacher, and I have been greatly satisfied with my decision. I have been at Guillen Middle School for a year and am currently teaching 7th Grade Social Studies. I am also the Head Coach for the Austin High School Swim Team.
