My name is Bryan J Henry. I am a Houstonian, teacher, activist, writer, and surfer.
I completed a B.A. in English and History at Texas A&M University in 2010. As an undergraduate student I was a member of the Liberal Arts Student Council, Philosophy Club, and Ratio Christi. I received an undergraduate research award for my essay on the critical theorist Herbert Marcuse. The highlights of my time at Texas A&M were volunteering for Barack Obama's 2008 primary campaign and meeting my wife in the English Department.
I began my teaching career at Kingwood High School in Kingwood, Texas in 2010 as an English teacher. I then taught AP World History, AP European History, and AP U.S. Government. While teaching at Kingwood High School I completed a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction at Texas A&M and a M.A. in Political Science at The University of Houston. My master's thesis was on the Enlightenment philosopher Immanuel Kant and civic education. I taught at Kingwood High School for 9 years and was an adjunct professor at Lone Star College - Kingwood for 5 years before joining the faculty at Lone Star College full-time.
