Mark of Excellence
My name is Coach Houghton and this is my sixth year at GMS. I am excited to be teaching World Geography. I have been teaching and coaching for over thirty years. I am married to Dr. Debra Houghton, principal at Mannsdale Upper and we have three children. Our daughter Haley and her husband A.J. live in Dallas, Texas where she is a M.D. at UT Southwestern and he is a Coach / Teacher at Arlington Martin H.S. Our son Chase lives in Nashville, TN where he works for Dominos as a loss and pervention specialist, and our youngest daughter Kelsey lives in Vermont, and works for the Vermont State Park System. All three of our children are graduates from Mississippi College. I graduated from Austin College in Sherman, TX, with a bachelors and masters degree in history and education. I am looking forward to teaching my students about the world and the importance of knowing and living geography.
