Mr. Rust

HELLO!!! I am excited to join the Shepard Middle School team for the 2019-2020 school year. My wife and I moved to San Antonio from Fort Worth a year ago and have enjoyed out time in one of the most historic cities in Texas. I graduated from The University of Texas at Arlington in 2012 with a degree in Mid-Level Education with a focus on Social Studies and ELAR. I have 7 years of teaching experience teaching English, Social Studies, AVID, and even some STEM classes. In my free time, I enjoy building things out of reclaimed wooden pallets, spending time attending festivals and small town squares, and am active in my church. I am here to help in any way that I can. I believe that all students can be successful and that the key is to finding what drives them and adapting the curriculum to relate to it.
