Mr. James Barry
Howdy Partner! Welcome to 7th grade Texas History.
My name is James Shannon Barry and I'm a teacher and coach at Moore MST. I have a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies from Stephen F. Austin. I graduated with honors in 1999, but my great Texas adventure began back in 1975.
As a sixth grader, I went on my first camping trip (and plane ride because Texas is HUGE y'all) all the way to the Davis Mountains. Since then I've been exploring our great state region by region and what an adventure I've had. I'll tell you all about it.
Speaking of a great Texas adventure, in this class we learn and tell the story of Texas. It's a wild journey so grab your rucksack filled with all of your school supplies and saddle up. We're covering over 600 years of Texas history!
