Degrees and Certifications:
University of North Texas - Bachelor of Arts, History - May 2012
Hello and welcome to my class! My name is Brandon Slimmer and I teach AP World History and ESL World History. This is my sixth year teaching high school and my third year here at Denton High. My first three years were spent teaching U.S. History, World History, Government, and Economics at Texans Can Academy in Farmers Branch. I have been a Denton resident for seven years and I love being able to teach here in the community that I care so much about!
I was born and raised about an hour away in Ft. Worth and graduated from North Crowley High School in 2008. I spent my first two years of college at Tarrant County College in Ft. Worth and I earned my Bachelor of Arts in History at the University of North Texas here in Denton in 2012. It was at UNT that I met my beautiful wife Cristin, whom I married in 2013. My wife currently teaches kindergarten in Northwest I.S.D. In May 2017 we welcomed our first child, Lyla, into the world!
Other interests I have besides teaching include traveling, following sports, and watching movies. I've been fortunate to have travelled to places such as Boston, New York, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Mexico, and Haiti. I am a die-hard Texas Rangers and Dallas Mavericks fan. (The 2011 NBA Finals still live fondly in my memory.) I am also very passionate about spending time with my family and friends and am very involved in my church as well. It is a privilege to be a member of the Denton High family and I am looking forward to a great year here at DHS. Go Broncos!
