Mr. Tanner Rasco

U.S. History - Social Studies

Howdy, my name is Tanner Rasco and I have the honor to teach our juniors at Galveston Ball High School. I am a transplant to the island and reign in from San Antonio, Texas. I have been teaching in the state of Texas since 2015. My pedagogy(philosophy of teaching) is that every student is naturally inclined to achieve. If a student's brain is not sweating then I am not doing my job. If students find the material to be irrelevant then I find creative ways to engage them. My class DOES history! (ie: performances, lyric writing, student competitions, debates, class in the courtyard for the day... etc). And most importantly, my door is always open for whenever a student or parent would like to see me because building relationships matter. Also, you can find me at extracurricular events! I look forward to an exciting year full of opportunity here at Ball HS! ALL FOR BALL!!!
