Mr. James Guest

My name is James Guest and I am a first grade teacher at Austin Parkway Elementary.  I was born and raised in Houston as the youngest in a large family.  After graduating from St. John's High School, I attended Southwestern University and later Vanderbilt University for a graduate degree.  I worked in the family business since age 16, spending my school breaks learning about the company my dad built.  After many years, I decided to change careers and work with children.  Since 2005, I have worked in the elementary setting in both special and general education classrooms.  I currently share my home in Houston with my dog. There is always a lot of activity going on around me whether at home or at school! I am glad to be teaching first grade this year!
