Mr. Larry Burroughs
It was my pleasure to join GISD in 2001 as U.S. History teacher at Austin Middle School, after teaching in Elgin ISD for five years. From 2007-10 I served as the Social Studies Liaison and had the opportunity to work with teachers across the district. In 2010, I reentered the classroom at AIM and successfully worked with numerous students trying to complete their academic requirements for Graduation. In 2013, I started teaching at Ball High and have been there ever since. I try to create a learning environment in which children feel safe, successful, and valued as individuals. My greatest reward from teaching has been the number of times former students have stopped me in a store or restaurant and told me that they loved my class and that I was their favorite teacher. When not in the classroom, I enjoy fishing and playing golf here on the island. I also love to attend the numerous parades and celebrations that are held here in Galveston. It is a great place to live and work. There is no other place I would rather be!!!
