Coach M. Trahan's Welcome Page
I am the Head Volleyball / Assistant Softball Coach and will be teaching Applied Algebra 1, Applied Geometry, and Applied Math Models. This is my first year at West Orange-Stark High School, 5th as a teacher, and 14th year as a coach (Volleyball, Softball, Soccer, & Basketball). Prior to entering the teaching profession, I spent 8 years doing Human Resources / Office Clerical Work. I also coached, assisted, and/or directed club volleyball for 9 years.
I was born and raised in Orange, TX where I graduated from LCM High School. I went on to college at Lamar University, and graduated from there in 2007 with a Bachelors of Business Administration with a focus in Management. I love animals and currently am the proud parent to a 1 year old doberman pinscher I rescued named Piper. I love playing/watching/coaching sports, spending time with Piper, and hanging out with my friends/family.
This year we will do education as we never have before. I ask that all students and parents be patient with the process and try their best to make this new system work. Please keep in touch with me and your other teachers with any problems or questions. I teach my courses on Google Classroom, and use a variety of resources and curriculum to teach the TEKS that the TEA has set.
I care for all of my students, and I am always looking for new ways to help my students to learn. I am very excited to be at West Orange - Stark for the 2020-2021 school year. Students we must be ready to work hard to achieve excellence in and out of the classroom. As we embark into this year, remember we are always pushing to be 1% better each day until we can achieve 112%. Let's have a great year and Go Mustangs!
