Dr.White, teaching and inspiring many students in the Criminal Justice classes since 2015, loves helping and guiding students to enter a career in law enforcement.  He started teaching at New Caney High School as a Criminal Justice teacher and helped co-sponsor the Criminal Justice club in 2015.

In the Criminal Justice club, he helps students who want to pursue a criminal justice career. The criminal justice club has two major competitions; Texas Public Services Association, and Texas Youth and Government Mock trial. Not only does Dr. White actively help students in both competitions,  but also gives true world scenarios in criminal justice areas.

Unlike some teachers who only hold one position, Dr. White engages in several jobs and activities. Not only does he teach law enforcement, but also teaches graduate and undergraduate college students. Additionally, he has a part time job as police officer with Roman Forest Police Department, and participates as a member of numerous non-education organizations.

Before entering law enforcement, Dr. White served six years as a Captain in the U.S. Air Force Space Command. He then served 8 years as an investigator and patrol officer with the Houston Police Department. After spending many years working in law enforcement, his wife and family persuaded him to enter teaching.

He knew he wanted to teach at the high school level because it stands as one of the important milestones before adulthood. He also believes that before adulthood, young teenagers will learn many significant life lessons.

Rather than teaching boring theory and irrelevant abstraction, he provides true life advice.  “If I can truly make a difference in the life of just one student each year, then I consider my job a success,” he states.

Dr. White’s favorite teaching activity  happens when students interactively involve themselves in a classroom setting, and he loves replicating law enforcement scenarios in class. He believes that practical experience stands as the best way for students to learn. “To provide an analogy, we can lead a horse to water, we cannot force it to drink,”  he further states.

Unfortunately, Dr. White will retire from teaching this year, leaving New Caney High School for a much better career opportunity with FEMA. New Caney High School students claim they will miss Dr. White, yet they seem happy he will pursue a career in helping and aiding people in major disasters.

Dr. White – not only a truly remarkable person, but also an inspiring teacher to many students!
