Welcome To The Tundra!
Welcome To The Tundra! I believe this will be a unique and exciting school year as some Polar Bears take classes on campus while other do so remotely via the Internet. Meanwhile, construction building a new cafeteria, dinning hall, gym, and other spaces will continue. Construction is expected to be completed within the school year. Over the summer, construction crews remodeled elementary bathrooms. Future remodeling projects are being planned, too.
About me...I grew up in Tornado Alley - Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. I graduated from Bloomburg (TX) High in 1985. Bloomburg, population 425, borders Arkansas and is 10 miles from Louisiana. I graduated with a Associate's Degree from Texarkana College in 1986, and I earned an B.S. in Business Administration from Texas A&M - Texarkana in 1989. While in high school and college, I worked at several jobs including being a construction laborer and a disc-jockey. I changed career aspirations after graduation and earned a teaching certificate, and later a Master's Degree, from Tarleton State. I joined the Frost High School faculty in the 1992-93 school year teaching U.S. History, Government, Economics, and World History. I have been a member of Navarro College's Adjunct Faculty since January 2004, and I became FHS principal in January 2018.
The 2020-21 school year will be my 29th year at FHS. I still get revved up about teaching U.S. History! We will learn about the people, places, and events that have shaped our nation into becoming a world leader. We will pick up the American story from after the Civil War starting with western expansion across the Great Plains and proceed chronologically into the New Millennium.
Have a great year!
