Hello! I am Wes Fox and I teach the CTE strands of Law, Public Safety, and Security; Intro to Law Enforcement I; Youth Court; and AVID. I've not always been a teacher. Before going to college I worked at Halliburton Services for about 10 years. I entered college at age 32 in 1996, and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies Education from Oklahoma Panhandle State University in 1999. As a member of TASK (Teachers as Scholars in Kansas) I earned a Master of Arts in American History from Emporia State University in 2006. I have numerous hours from the University of San Diego, University of Colorado in Denver, and Newman University. I have been to 2 different AVID Social Studies Path Trainings and 5 AVID Elective Teacher Trainings. I've been a Kansas History Day judge at the Eisenhower Presidential Library. I have been teaching at LHS since 1999, and the classes I've taught include US History, AP US History, College American History American National Government, Sociology, Macro Economics, World Regional Geography, and World History and the AVID Elective. I was the Social Science department chair for 4 years before switching my teaching assignment from Social Science to CTE. At the college level I have taught Human Geography, World Regional Geography, American National Government, American History I and American History II. I student taught at LHS under Charles Chain and Bruce Stickler, and I learned a great deal from both of these people. I also serve on the AVID Site Team. I am married to Michelle Fox, who is the Physical Therapist for USD 480. We were married in 1990 and have 2 children. Our son, Jared, is a firefighter for the Liberal Fire Department, and our daughter, Amy Jo is a sophomore at SCCC. Outside the classroom, I enjoy camping with my family, hunting, and I especially enjoy flyfishing for trout. I am also a volunteer firefighter for the Liberal Fire Department.
