My name is Bryan J Henry. I am a native Houstonian and I have had the privilege of teaching at Kingwood High School in Kingwood, Texas since 2010. I currently teach AP European History and AP/Dual Credit U.S. Government. I am the faculty sponsor for UIL Social Studies and Rho Kappa Social Studies Honor Society. I also sponsor student trips to Washington D.C. to participate in the Close Up civic education program.
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 essay award for my senior seminar paper 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 Brittany in the English Department. She went on to complete a PhD. in English at Rice University where she is currently a post-doctoral fellow.
While teaching at Kingwood High School I have 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. In my free time I enjoy writing about education and politics, surfing the Third Coast, and traveling with my wife Brittany and daughter Madeleine.
