Mr. Larry Burroughs

History Teacher

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!!!
