Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. David Minshew
This is my eleventh year to teach. Before teaching, I worked as a lab technician for 26 years and a land surveyor for 8 years. At the age of 52, I discovered that I love teaching. I especially enjoy teaching students who have special needs. I taught at Diboll High School in Diboll, Texas for nine years. This is my second year in Fredericksburg.
I am from Lufkin, which is 100 miles north of Houston, in East Texas. I graduated from Lufkin High School in 1975. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a teaching certificate in 1988. I began teaching in 2009. My teaching fields are Government, Science, and Math. I obtained my Master’s degree in School Counseling from Lamar University in 2015.
I have been married for 40 years, and have two children. My 38 year old son and his family live in Fredericksburg. My 36 year old daughter and her family live in the Austin area. I have six grandchildren under the age of 9. Two grandchildren live in Fredericksburg and the other four live in Austin. I relocated to the Hill Country to teach at Fredericksburg Elementary. I love teaching in Fredericksburg and look forward to teaching here for many years.
