7th Grade Texas History
Howdy! I am Nelson Hairgrove and I am a first year teacher here at Lincoln Jr High. I am a former Houston Police Officer, Navy Sailor and Army Infantryman. I have traveled to many places in the world, Ireland, Germany, Djibouti, Kuwait and other fantastic places. I have lived in Iceland and have deployed to Iraq. I have seen the Euphrates river from the window of a helicopter and explored the ruins of a Viking farmhouse at Stong near Reykjavik. I have trained many soldiers to do their jobs, including Iraqis and Ugandans. I have spent the last year on a deployment to Somalia with the US Army. But my favorite place and favorite people are here in Texas.
My Teaching Philosophy:
Every student deserves the best education that I can provide. Every student is capable of succeeding. My goal is to help students develop a tool set that will lead them to success in all that they do. Lincoln Jr High embraces the philosophy of Servant Leadership. I wholeheartedly embrace this philosophy. I look forward to exploring the history of our great state with each and every one of you.
