Tellez, Frank - Social Studies

Welcome To My Classroom
Dr. Frank R. Tellez

Welcome Students, Parents, Colleagues, and All!   My name is Frank R. Tellez
(pronounced tay-is).

Welcome to Erwin for the 2021-2022 School Year.

I want to welcome everyone back to in-class learning. Yes, we are back in school, but as per Buncombe County mandate we have to wear a face covering.

I started my career here at Erwin High School in 2015. I am excited to teach World History and Honors World History to our Erwin High School Students.

I am from Albuquerque, New Mexico where I taught American History, World History, and Government for 13 years.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science, a Master's Degree in American History, and a Ph.D. in Language Literacy and Socio Cultural Studies with concentrations in Critical Race Theory, Social Justice in Education, Educational Leadership, and Western American History.

I look forward to sharing "Stories of the Past' to inspire you into understanding the importance and relevance of World History.

You will learn to decode, analyze, and critique the events and decisions made by our past leaders so that you can learn from their successes or mistakes.  This will allow you to assume your rightful niche in society as one of  'our leaders of tomorrow.' 

The ride will be enlightening and exciting. So students, get on board, let us begin our journey to understanding the past, learning from our history so that WE can make the world a better place for EVERYONE
