About Bruce


Bio

I was born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. My father was an advocate of literacy and education, so reading was emphasized as well as studying history and cultures first hand. Therefore, extensive global travel was afforded me beginning at an early age in life.

Indeed, the global classroom impacted me in such a positive way, that on my first foray overseas as a student, I met my future wife at age fourteen while residing in the Maison du Liban at Cite Universitaire,...

I was born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. My father was an advocate of literacy and education, so reading was emphasized as well as studying history and cultures first hand. Therefore, extensive global travel was afforded me beginning at an early age in life.

Indeed, the global classroom impacted me in such a positive way, that on my first foray overseas as a student, I met my future wife at age fourteen while residing in the Maison du Liban at Cite Universitaire, Paris, France.

My professional life has taken me on a long and winding road! Upon graduating with a BA in History from the University of Denver, my wife and I began our first career in Tulsa in the Petroleum Industry during the oil boom.

Early on, my wife became a full-time, stay-at-home mom for our daughters, and I began a long career in the food and beverage industry, both in Tulsa and Dallas. As our daughters began middle-school, my wife began a career in education, and eventually convinced me that I also missed my calling and my passion; teaching history!

Bishop Lynch High School invited me to join the faculty in January 2004 where I had been part of the BL community for about a dozen years. Due to my affiliation as a Catholic school educator, a door opened that led to my creating a Holocaust Studies course that was only one of two schools in the DFW metroplex offering that semester elective course.

I have received nearly 600 clock hours of education/training from both the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and Yad Vashem in Jerusalem in teaching the Holocaust.

As a natural storyteller, I always wove that element into classroom instruction, always attempting to 'connect the dots, thereby making the material relevant to our students today in the twenty-first century!
