Mr. Erasmo Vázquez Ríos
I am very excited to be here, for this 2019-2020 school year will be my 11th year teaching Social Sciences. 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 had the fortune of teaching 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 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, and Racism in America.
I was born in Chicago, Illinois, but I was raised in Houston, TX. I root for both the BEARS and the TEXANS. 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 for 15 years. I have two wonderful sons: Gaél and Eduardo.
I enjoy reading, it is one of my passions. Two books that I have 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.
