Reverend George Jachimczyk

I'm Rev. George Jachimczyk, a teacher in the Social Studies Department.

I've been teaching for 18 years and this is my 4th full year at Willowridge. During these 18 years, I've taught English, Business Law, Geography, World History, US History, APUSH, Government, AP Government, Economics, Sociology and Psychology.

I live in Houston, TX with my cat, Balthazar.  

In addition to my work as an Orthodox Christian clergyman, I have also worked in software consulting and training, accounting, and music before I came to teaching.  To this day, past students still reach out to me for advice and emotional support.

Deadlines are Important

  • Deadlines are important factors in life.  We all have them, we all hate them, but we all have to deal with them.  I hold to strict deadlines for assignments in my class because I feel it is something that life teaches us and we need to be prepared.  While late work happens, we know that it eventually catches up with us and makes life more difficult.  As a Social Studies teacher, I not only teach about the specific subject but also about social interactions and this includes learning to deal with deadlines.

    If a deadline comes and an assignment is not turned in on time, the assignment will be locked in Schoology.  It may be opened at a later date, but it will incur a late penalty.  See the late grading policy on this page for details. 

Late Work Policy

  • Late work will be accepted under the following guidelines.   In keeping within the limits of the district policy, since 90% of assignments are collected through Schoology, students will be assessed a late penalty of 5pts for each calendar day they are late.  Once a student is late 10 days, I will not go lower than a 50.  If the absence is an excused one, they will get full credit for work when they return if it is submitted within 3 days.  Since most of our assignments are posted on Schoology, students have access to the assignments even if they are not in school.  If your child has any questions about an assignment, they can email me at and I will reply to them during school hours.
