Mr. Evan Shepherd
Welcome to 6th Grade World Cultures! This will be my fourth full year in Prosper ISD. I have taught 6th grade social studies and coached football, basketball, track and tennis at Reynolds Middle School in Prosper for the past three years before moving to Hays Middle School. I am both honored and excited to be a part of the first year of Hays Middle School. I am excited to lead and share in the journey this year as we discover areas and cultures all over the world!
I am a world traveler and I love sharing with my students about my travels and the unique cultures I get to experience and share in. I have traveled to many countries with very unique and incredible cultures such as New Zealand, Fiji, Scotland, Italy, Germany, Ireland and England (to a name a few) with many more destinations to be visited this year and beyond! We are fortunate enough to learn about many of many of the places I have visited and cultures in the 6th grade World Cultures curriculum. I am also an avid rock climber, mountain biker, skiier and overall outdoors enthusiast in my spare time-- don't worry, they are all much safer hobbies/sports than you may think!
I graduated from the University of North Texas where I received my Bachelors of Science in Sports Management, as well as History. After college, I spent around 3 years in the corporate world finding my ultimate calling in teaching. During and following my college years, I have lived in various places such as Colorado, Wyoming and Los Angeles, CA.
As a "history buff," I love sharing my passion for history with everyone. Some of my favorite topics in history include Scottish history, Ancient Greece and Egypt, World War I, II and "Between the Wars", Medieval history and many more! I also love discovering, learning about and experiencing other cultures of our world.
I am excited for the 2019-2020 school year and proud to be at Hays Middle School! Go Hawks!
