"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
About Mr. Coburn:
After serving in the military in West Germany as a Czech Intelligence Analyst during the cold war, Mr. Coburn attended St. Leo University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management with a specialty in Computer Information Systems. He also holds a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from National-Louis University.
Although Mr. Coburn was born in Maryland, his family has a long history in Brooksville and he has lived here most of his life. He attended Brooksville Primary School, Eastside Elementary (when it opened), Brooksville Junior High (which changed to Parrot Junior High), and graduated from Hernando High School.
He began his educational career at D.S. Parrot Middle School as a Computer Science and Business Applications teacher and taught those classes for 11 years. Mr. Coburn then obtained Social Studies certification and began teaching 7th Grade World Geography. He has also taught Civics and 8th Grade United States History and currently teaches 6th Grade United States History which focuses on the exploration of the New World through Reconstruction (1877). Mr. Coburn also teaches an Advanced United States History class.
Mr. Coburn enjoys differing points of view that the students bring to classroom discussions. He wants students to be able to debate both sides of an issue to truly learn about the subject.
