Instructor: Michelle Dech

Welcome to Sociology.  I have a BA in History from University of Texas in San Antonio, an MPS in Political Science and a M.Ed. in Educational Leadership.  I currently teach Sociology and Psychology at Veterans Memorial High School and Texas and US Government at St. Philips College.  I was an Air Force brat born in Aurora CO and grew up moving and meeting people from all over, which has given me an open perspective to life. I graduated from high school early and went in the Army when I was 17 as an enlisted and stationed in Germany.  I loved Germany and Italy while I was overseas.
