Hello! My name is Terry Martin-Hyward. I have been teaching in Willisisd for 39 years. This is my 40th year. My first 30 years were spent at Willis High School. The last 10 years I have been at Stubblefield Alternative Academy, 207 Philpot. I have taught Social Studies all of my years at WISD. My subjects include US Government (Level and AP), Economics (Level and AP) US History 11thgrade (Resource, Level, IB, AP/Honors), World History (Level and Honors/AP), World Geography (TAAS, Level and PreAP), US History 8th grade and Texas History 7th grade. Since starting at Stubblefield, I can have as many as 5 subjects in one class period. Texas History is now taught by someone else (2020).

EDUCATION: I graduated from Huntsville High School in Huntsville, Texas. I went on to Sam Houston State University, earning a Bachelor's Degree in History/English in 1981. After graduating in May of 1981, Willis ISD offered me a job in September of that same year. I earned my Master's Degree in 1985 and my Social Science Composite in 1993.

FAMILY BACKGROUND.: I am the youngest of 9 children and the only one to go to college. I have 2 children, son Teryck (29) and daughter Etangela (24). I have 2 grandaughters, Terianna (age 6) and Essha Paikara (age 3). Essha's dad is from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. I am active in my church where I serve as secretary/clerk (for 24 years). Life is full. I am hoping to retire soon, to give someone else the opportunity to touch young minds.
