More About Me

I am beginning my 7th year of teaching and coaching and 2nd year with Seminole I.S.D. after having spent 2 years at Refugio I.S.D. and 3 years at Gunter I.S.D. I teach World Geography as well as coach football and track.

 

I was born in Olney, Texas. I graduated from Bells High School in Bells, Texas where I lettered in football 4 years, basketball 2 years, baseball 4 years, and track 3 years. I was also a member of the 1996 Oil Bowl football team.

 

I attended Howard Payne University in Brownwood, where I played football 1 year, Grayson County College in Denison, Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, where I played football 2 years, Texas Tech University in Lubbock, and West Texas A&M University in Canyon, where I received a B.S. of General Studies in December of 2005. I am certified to teach American History, Economics, Government, Health, Physical Education, Social Studies, World Geography, and World History.

 

My entire family is involved in Education and Sports. My Dad retired after Coaching for over 36 years. He spent 18 years in Olney, 10 years in Bells, and 8 years in Pottsboro. My mom retired from Teaching Pre-K at Bells where she taught for 18 years. My middle brother Jason played Football & ran Track at McMurry University, where he later was an Assistant Track Coach winning the 2008 NCAA Division III National Championship, finished as the runner-up in 2009, & 3rd place in 2010 & 2011. He also served as their Strength & Conditioning Coach. He now teaches Science and is the Head Girls Track Coach, as well as the Strength & Conditioning coach at Motley County I.S.D. His wife Amelia teaches Math & World Geography, and is the Head Girls Basketball & Head Tennis Coach at Motley County I.S.D. My youngest brother Brady played Football & ran Track at McMurry University, and now teaches Math and is an Assistant Football & Head Boys Track Coach at Justin Northwest High School.

 

I spend my free time watching anything that involves Texas Tech Red Raider sports, listening to Texas music, love watching all sorts of movies, cooking, take care of my numerous houseplants, and also enjoy anything that deals with weather. In addition to spending as much time as possible with my 4 nieces & nephew.

The goal of athletics is to educate our youth in areas which will lead to the development of the attitudes and actions necessary for a productive life in our democratic society. Among these attitudes are cooperation, self-motivation, self-discipline, respect, self-confidence, and responsibility.

 

Athletics should be carried out with these objectives:

 

1. Develop athletes to become the best competitors on the field and the best students they can be off the field.

 

2. Instill good habits, sound morals, and a high standard of sportsmanship in the students involved in the program.

 

3. Develop an appreciation for good health, proper rest, and overall physical fitness.

 

4. Emphasize to athletes the realization that athletic competition is a privilege that carries definite responsibilities with it. Some of these responsibilities are: training, loyalty, eligibility, improvement, courage, and perseverance.

 

5. Develop each program in such a manner that the end result will be one of unity, harmony, and success.

 

6. Instill the courage to face reality and to meet all problems with patience, self-confidence, and a positive attitude.

 

7. Develop an appreciation for other people with whom we work, play, and live.

In World Geography, students examine people, places, and environments at local, regional, national, and international scales from the spatial and ecological perspectives of geography.

 

Students describe the influence of geography on events of the past and present with emphasis on contemporary issues.

 

A significant portion of the course enters around the physical processes that shape patterns in the physical environment; the characteristics of major landforms, climates, and ecosystems and their interrelationships; the political, economic, and social processes that shape cultural patterns of regions; types and patterns of settlement; the distribution and movement of the world population; relationships among people, places, and environments; and the concept of region.

 

Students analyze how location affects economic activities in different economic systems throughout the world.

 

Students identify the processes that influence political divisions of the planet and analyze how different points of view affect the development of public policies.

 

Students compare how components of culture shape the characteristics of regions and analyze the impact of technology and human modifications on the physical environment.

 

Students use problem-solving and decision-making skills to ask and answer geographic questions.

How to survive in Coach Reeves’ World Geography Class

  1. RESPECT is required!!  I treat everyone in my classroom as an individual who is worthy of respect and expect that all students do the same.  In case anyone is unaware, here are some ways to show others respect:
  • Saying “Yes, sir” “No, sir” or “Yes, ma’am” “No, ma’am” when asked yes/no questions by anyone.
  • Remaining quiet while others are speaking or working and not blurting out comments during presentations.
  • Doing what is asked of oneself.  (Following directions and asking permission to do otherwise.)
  • Refrain from calling names that are derogatory.  If someone takes offense to teasing, it is not respectful.
  • Saying, “Excuse me”, “I’m sorry”, or “Can you say that again please” if you did not hear what someone asked you.
  • Doing or saying anything else that is considerate of another’s space, property, opinion or being.

Behavior that is not respectful in any way is inappropriate for the classroom and will not be tolerated.  Repeated disrespectful behavior from a student will earn the consequences of discipline procedures.

  1. Be PREPARED everyday.  This means being on time to class, having your textbook, writing utensils, paper, laptop, and whatever other materials you are asked to bring that day.  It also means being ready to participate appropriately and following the requirements listed on this sheet.  Not being prepared can result in poor results on required assignments.
  2. Have an OPEN MIND to learning something new.  Over the course of the school year many ideas will be presented that you have not heard before.  Success in this class will require each student to be ready to hear and learn new ideas every day.  Before you come to class, you will be unable to know if or when something new will be presented to you.  Being selective on which days your mind is “open” or “closed” will not be effective.
  3. Make an honest EFFORT.  Students will only be asked to do things that you are capable of doing.  You may or may not want to do it but it will be in your best interest to do what is asked of you.  Students who make little or no effort to do what is asked of them will not earn a passing grade – period.
  4. COMMUNICATE with me.  As talented as I am, I am not able to read minds.  Therefore, if you are having a problem inside or outside of this class that is affecting or could affect your performance, I may be unaware of the situation.  Talk to me regarding what you are dealing with and we will find an appropriate solution.  Otherwise, I will regard your behavior as disobedient and noncompliant.


Other behaviors I expect from my students:

  • You should be in your seat each day when the bell rings and begin working on the introductory assignment if one is posted that day.
  • Have patience when things do not go as planned or if people are making mistakes.  Nobody here is perfect and we all need some consideration.  If you are making mistakes, try to correct them ASAP.  Otherwise, the patience of others will run out on you.
  • Be willing to admit when you make a mistake and apologize afterwards.  This is a sign of maturity and wisdom.  Also, be willing to forgive others when they make a mistake – remember, nobody here (including yourself) is beyond making errors.
  • Stay seated in your desk/work area while working or waiting.  There is no reason for students to stand by the door or anywhere else in the classroom at any time.  The bells do not dismiss class, the teacher does.  Students don’t leave until I tell everyone to leave.
