Hello, my name is Charles Keith Godfrey. I am a native of Scotland and the UK, but have been in the US for 25 years. I have a background in Texas Education since 1999 and certified as a Texas Teacher in 2010. I am also a History Graduate of the University of Cambridge with History always being my primary interest. I look forward to working with your students and the rest of the Social Studies team to bring them successfully through this school year and have them well prepared for their entrance into 11th Grade next year.
I also look forward to working with my Seniors classes in US Government and Economics. I am looking forward to attending their Graduation at the end of the year and watching them do the "Walk".
Below you will find my class procedures and contact information. My Planning Period is 2nd Period.
