Mr. BJ Armstrong

Hello, my name is B.J. Armstrong and I am proud to be a GOLDEN EAGLE! I am entering into my 13th 1/2 year at Athens High School and my 16th overall. During the 2020-2021 school year, I will be teaching Modern World History in the 9th Grade Academy. During the 1st and 2nd Semester, my planning block is during 1st Block. I am an Assistant Varsity football coach, where I coach Outside Linebackers and Special Teams. I enjoy working outdoors, and I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. My favorite focuses in history surround three different time periods: the American Revolution, World War I and World War II. I am married to Kate Armstrong, who is the Instructional Partner at Athens Intermediate 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 where we came from, but we have the free will to determine where we are going. History is not just facts about the past, but often played out in the present.
