Mr. Erasmo Vázquez Ríos
I am very excited to be here, for this new school year! I have been with LEHS since the 2013-14 school year. I have taught almost every social studies subject including U.S. History, World Geography, U.S. Government, Economics, World History, AP Government, and AP Macroeconomics. In addition to teaching here in Little Elm, I have taught in Houston, TX and Plainfield, IL. I will be teaching US Government, AP US Government, Economics, and AP Macroeconomics this school year.
A bit about myself. I have a Bachelor's Degree in History from the University of Houston-Downtown. I also have a Master's Degree in History from the University of Nebraska with an emphasis on Mexican-American History. I'm also attending Lamar University right now. I also have several Associate's Degrees from several colleges around the country, yes I'm a nerd. Among other topics, I have studied Native America, African American History, Religion, Criminal Justice, Racism in America, and as previously mentioned, Mexican-American History.
I was born in Chicago, Illinois, but I was raised in Houston, TX. I root for both the BEARS and the TEXANS and the BULLS and the ROCKETS. I have lived in Texas, Illinois, Louisiana, Nebraska, and San Luis Potosí, México. I enjoy reading, jogging, traveling, and listening to music. Some of my most memorable traveling places have been Chichen Itza, Xilitla, Puerto Vallarta, and Niagara Falls.
I have been happily married to Maria since 2004. I have two wonderful sons who also attend LEISD schools.
I enjoy reading, it is one of my passions. Two books that I read last year are Chicano! The History of the Mexican-American Civil-Rights Movement by Dr. Francisco A. Rosales and Mexican Chicago: Race, Identity, and Nation by Dr. Gabriela F. Arredondo.
