Hello!
I'm Coach Fowler, I teach Texas History and coach Tennis.
 
This will be my fourth year teaching! I graduated from UTPB in 2015 with a Bachelors in History, focus on Revolutionary America and Government Documents.
I fell in love with History while I was in college when "the shift" happened - history stopped being rhymes and timelines and became stories told in a way that connected and tangled in such a way that I could remember, truly remember, what I was learning. My teaching style mirrors this. I believe we learn from stories, not memorizing timelines the night before a test!
 
Tennis is my passion. I love this sport and I love getting to share my knowledge with others so they, too, love tennis. I started playing when I was 11 years old, so I have 17 years of experience on the court. During that time I left school, attended the John Newcombe Tennis Academy for a year, left from there to live with my coach in Arizona and turned pro, played with Andre Agassi in the adidas training center, and played in a tournament where winning meant going to the US Open... All before I turned 17. I have played all across the continental US, with people from all over the world, and have collected that knowledge and experience to create my own unique coaching style.
 
I am SO excited to be here and work with your kids!!
