I'm teaching US History to 11th graders at in Garland ISD/ NE Dallas.
They are the Naaman Rangers. The mascot looks like a hunter green Sarge!
First Varsity football game is August 29th!
NFHS is built on a 62.13 acre site, which backs up to a natural forest preserve on one side and can be seen through the trees from the George Bush Turnpike on the other side. Opened in 1988; 5A serving 2,521 students; actually named after a Bible character in 2 Kings 5 (An Assyrian general who is healed of leprosy). The principal is a Christian and so is the AP directly over me! He ended our phone conversatoin this morning with "Thanks and God Bless. Welcome to the Naaman family." Cool huh?
I report to work Wednesday, August 13. Not sure yet what day school starts. Whoop.
