Mr. Kevin Walls
Welcome Panthers! I hope you are as excited as I am about all the new and wonderful opportunities that this year has in store. I know this year is starting out differently than any other we have experienced and that there are new challenges ahead for us, but I am confident that we will persevere. During our year together we will be traveling the entire globe to learn about geography, world history, modern world cultures, and some of the the different civilizations past and present on our planet. We will study culture, government, history, and economics along the way. Students please make sure you join the social studies google classroom for your specific class period. I will post a nine weeks calendar there, a daily one sentence summary of our lesson plan, agendas, copies of classwork and homework, reading packets, etc. Parents cannot join the classroom, but you can print out a nine weeks calendar for them so they know what we are doing. My google classroom codes will be on this page.
This is my 23rd year of teaching and my 11th year here at Lopez Middle School teaching 6th grade social studies. I taught 8 years at Hobby Middle School before joining the Bush staff for 3 years. I then took a couple of years off to be a stay-at-home-dad before returning to the classroom (another year at Bush) and finally landing at Lopez MS.
I graduated from Baylor University in 1990 and I am a huge Baylor fan! This is my 25th year of having football season tickets. We enjoyed a wonderful season last year culminating in a Sugar Bowl birth. We lost a lot off our defense and switched head coaches so I don't expect 10 wins like last year, but I hope we play this year, win enough games to return to a bowl game, and return to competing for Big XII championships in the near future. Both of our basketball teams were #1 at points last year and should be in the hunt for a national championship this year. Looking forward to current Lady Rattler, Sammie Wagner, joining my Lady Bears in a couple of years.
It was at Baylor that I met and married my wife, Lisa Walls. She is a teacher and Coach at Bush MS. We have been married for 29 years and have one son that is a junior at Reagan. He is one of the greatest blessings in my life!
