Mr. BJ Armstrong
Hello, my name is B.J. Armstrong and I am proud to be a GOLDEN EAGLE! I am entering into my 10th year at Athens High School and my 13th overall. During the 1st Semester of the 2017-2018 school year, I will be teaching Modern World History and U.S. History 10. During the 2nd Semester of the 2017-2018 school year, I will be teaching Modern World History and Honors Economics and Government. I am an Assistant Varsity football coach, where I coach Outside Linebackers and Special Teams. I enjoy the outdoors, and I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I like studying three periods of history: the American Revolution, World War I and World War II. I am married to Kate Armstrong, who teaches 1st grade at Athens Elementary School and we have two children, Holden and Addison Grace. Why I teach and enjoy history is because history tells us who we are and why we are the way we are. History is not just facts about the past, but played out in the present.
