Mr. Edmund Hendon

CTE Department Chair, Dual Credit Speech Instructor Galveston College, Professional Communications Teacher Ball High

I'm Edmund Hendon, I have been teaching at Ball High since 2006, I have been in the great state of Texas moving for the chilly winds of Chicago, IL. I'm passionate about students going to college and preparing themselves for the future. It's important that every student I come in contact with can speak to a group and they have some idea of what they want their future to look like. I spend my spare time reading, watching television, photography and I'm learning how to fish.

My favorite quote comes from Martin Luther King, Jr.:
" If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill, be a shrub in the valley, but be the best little shrub by the side of the hill, be a bush if you can't be a tree if you can't be a highway just be a trail, if you can't be the sun be a star, it isn't by size that you win or you fail be the best of whatever you are."

I'm also the sponsor for the Ball High chapter of the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS)
