Mr. Coach Tom Byrd

Hello, and welcome to my Economics and Sociology classes. I have been teaching high school in Texas for 41 years. Beginning at Westchester HS and Memorial HS (Spring Branch ISD), Hastings HS (Alief ISD), and Austin HS (Fort Bend ISD). This will be the start of my 26th year at Austin HS. I attended Sharpstown High School, where I  was a three-year varsity letterman. I attended North Texas State University on an athletic scholarship and completed my degree at The University of Texas at Austin in 1981. I have been married to my wonderful wife for 38 years, and am fulfilled through my membership at Faith United Methodist Church, and collecting/studying Native American Cultures. I enjoy collecting Native American cultural artifacts, drawing tribal designs, and collecting and reselling vinyl LP’s and CDs. I own and operate two small companies, Sharpstown Boy Records, and FreeByrdArt Tribal Designs.
