I'm Daniel Chimes and I am a member of the
Social Studies department at Shadow Creek
High School. I teach AP Psych, World History
and the AP version of that course. The
2019-2020 school year marks my 9th as
a high school teacher.
My dad came to this country from England
on a track scholarship and met my mom at
university. After marrying, they eventually
settled near Houston for work. My dad has
worked as an engineer for NASA for over 30
years. He and my mom had three boys
(Matthew, me, and Luke) born and raised
in the Clear Lake Area.
I have a diverse personal and educational
background and a wide range of interests.
I attended Dickinson High School
and then on to the University of Houston
(class of 2009). I taught English in Galena
Park ISD for four years before moving to
Alvin ISD. I have certifications in Social
Studies, English, and Music. In my spare
time I write songs, engineer sound
recordings, and play drums with my church's
praise and worship team. I am a soccer
player, runner, and enthusiastic motorcycle
rider. I enjoy a variety of musical styles,
cooking, reading about history, photography,
Some of the places I've traveled to...
The Dominican Republic (where my wife
is from), England & New Zealand(my family),
Russia, Mexico, Honduras, Belize, and all
around the USA.
I live in Dickinson, TX with
my beautiful wife, Jossette.
