Welcome to Mr. Hawkins' Social Studies classes

  • Welcome to United States History, Advanced Placement History, and Senior Economics.  According to the Florida Department of Education, I am certified as a "Highly Qualified" teacher in the areas of Social Sciences 6-12 and Physcial Education K-12.  This is my 16th year in public education.  Other areas of my background are as a professional athlete, college head coach, and the business world.  I have been a Head Tennis Coach at the United States Military Academy, West Point, NY and Central Florida Community College, (CFCC, ), now the College of Central Florida, Ocala, FL.  In 2001, I led CFCC to the national college championship.  Two starters on that team were former DHS Tigers!  I am proud to say I am a United States Army Veteran.  GO ARMY!  My proudest accomplishments are my two children.  They have gone on to become good citizens and great productive members of society in the fields of fashion and coaching.  

    In my short time here at Dunnellon HS, almost four years, I have served as a peer teacher, on the SAC and literacy committees, and helped coach five teams.  I am the Head Coach of the Boy's Tennis team.  Students know they can come in during 1st half of Power Hour and get help with their academics and I am also known to write prompt, pretty darn good recommendations for colleges, jobs, and grants.

    GO TIGERS!!!
