My name is Coach Gearhart and I will be teaching Honors World Geography this year, as well as Government in the Fall and Economics in the Spring. This my 13th year teaching at Steele, 24th year in SCUC and my 26th year of teaching. I graduated from Texas A&M (WHOOP!!!) with my BS and got an MS from Texas A&M, Kingsville. I received my teacher training at Sam Houston State in Huntsville. I became a teacher after being an engineer with Westinghouse Electronics in College Station. Before coming to Steele I was the SS Department Chair at Dobie for 10 years, where I taught Pre-AP US History and coached football, basketball, and track. I was also the assistant softball coach at Clemens. Since coming to Steele I have taught everything but Psychology in the Social Studies Department. This is my 8th year teaching Honors or Pre-AP World Geography and my sixth teaching Economics. I am also an asistant football and assistant softball coach. I am from Colorado originally so I really like to spend time outdoors. I also love to travel. We've been all over Europe. In fact, when I retire, we will be moving to Italy. I was a Fulbright-Hays Scholar and taught pedagogy at the University of Beijing. I am a voracious reader and enjoy nothing better than lying in a hammock by the river at our ranch in Llano and reading ANY book. My favorite thing about teaching is getting to know my students and helping them to become positive, productive members of society. I realized after this last spring how much physical energy I draw from the kids. They really do keep me feeling young! I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you either online or face to face. My absolutely magnificent, talented, beautiful wife and I have been married for 39 years, which means she goes straight to the front of the line when she gets to Heaven. My Cynthia Ann got her BS and MS in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois.
Both Honors Geography and Government/Economics will be using Google Classroom.
All assignments, course materials, and resources will be found on my Google Classroom.
Please note that grades will NOT be posted on Google Classroom.
All grades will be posted on txConnect, which is the online gradebook used by the district.
I am usually at school by 7:30 every morning. Students are welcome to come into my classroom and work on any assignments they have for any class, not just my work.
*NOTE Please be aware that because of Athletics I am NOT available after school for tutoring or makeup exams.
