Mr. Chris Griscom

I have been a social studies teacher going on twenty-one years now.  This is my ninth  year in North East ISD and I am really excited to be part of the MacArthur team.  I have previously taught at East Central High School from 2001-2013 here in San Antonio, Texas.  I have been married to my wonderful wife for twenty-four happy years and we have three awesome kids.  I have 1 child that is still in high school and will be a jr this year, one that graduated in 2018 and is now a Senior at Trinity University and one that graduated in 2020 and will begin his Sophmore year at TLU where he is a high jumper on the track team.  I believe that teaching is a "calling" and something that I was placed on earth to do and love to do.  I truly enjoy the daily interactions with my students and look forward to helping each of them to achieve their full potential in learning and to become productive members of society.  Everything can be taken away from us but our education stays with us always!  I will be teaching United States Government and Politics, Advanced Placement Psychology and Sociology this year at Mac.  I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in History from Sam Houston State University in May of 1996.  I earned my Masters of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University in May of 2010.  As we navigate this "new" and different reality, we are all in this together and we will do the best we can with what we have to get through this together!  There will be bumps in the road and we will work through them and go around, over or through them!  I look forward to welcoming my students back into the classroom!  I look forward to working with you.
