Welcome to Shadow Creek High School, home of the Sharks!! My name is Yusef McCree, Criminal Justice/Law Instructor and SkillsUSA advisor for SCHS. I will be teaching Principles of Law, Law Enforcement 1, and Criminal Investigations for the 2019-2020 school year. I'm from Abilene, Texas and graduated from Hardin Simmons University where I received a B.B.S. in Police Science & Administration. I also attended Sam Houston State University where I studied Criminal Justice/Leadership & Management at the graduate level. I was employed with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for (21) years, having been assigned to six maximum security correctional facilities throughout the state. Assignments included General Population, Administrative Segregation, and High Security. I also received promotions to Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Captain of Correctional Officers. I'm a DIE HARD Dallas Cowboys fan, I love Chinese food, and my favorite game show is "Jeopardy."
I want parents and students to know that I am living a childhood dream. I have always wanted to both coach and teach and now I have this wonderful opportunity. It's an opportunity to educate students in a content area that I absolutely love and have a strong passion for. My goal is to educate, mentor, and provide students true insight into the criminal justice system. Students will understand the importance of integrity, professionalism, and good moral values. Students will be given the tools and resources to not only be successful inside the classroom, it will transition to their development of being positive pillars in the community. 2019-2020 is going to be a great school year and I look forward to being on this adventurous journey with you.
