Mr. BJ Armstrong

Hello, my name is B.J. Armstrong and I am proud to be a GOLDEN EAGLE! I am entering into my 11th year at Athens High School and my 14th overall. During the 2018-2019 school year, I will be teaching Modern World History in the 9th Grade Academy. During the 1st Semester, my planning block is during 1st Block and during the 2nd Semester, my planning block is during the 3rd Block. Every Thursday, I have open office hours during Power Hour. 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. 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 3rd 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 where we came from, but we determine where we are going. History is not just facts about the past, but oftern played out in the present.
