Mr. Gurkan Bekar
My name is Gurkan Bekar. I am excited to be your teacher for this school year, 2020-21. I have been a teacher for 14 years, and this will be my 11th year at DATA and Roosevelt High School. I didn't go into teaching right out of college and worked in the customer service industry for many years. I worked as a manager at a movie theatre in both Texas and Oklahoma. Here in San Antonio, I helped open the Quarry Market, Northwoods, and Live Oak theatres. Teaching has helped me embrace my passions in history and literature and my need to give back to the community.
I have a myriad of interests and hobbies when I am not teaching that include both indoor and outdoor activities. The word "bored" is not in my vocabulary. I am not a San Antonio native. I was a military brat and was actually born in Germany! I am married and have 2 sons, Alexander-who graduated from DATA High School- and Christian-who attends DATA Middle School. DATA is in our blood! If you have any questions, please e-mail me at email@example.com or call me at 210-356-2237
