Brian Snyders

Social Studies Teacher

Began at Teachwell:


Why did you choose this field?

 The opportunity to have a positive impact on the world.

What or who most inspires you?

 My wife and my God. She and I have been through alot together and we continually root for and encourage each other.

Why Teachwell?

I took a two year break from teaching. It allowed me to rediscover why I became a teacher in the first place. Teachwell provided me with an opportunity to reach kids who needed it more than most.

What keeps you motivated?

 My family. I have a wonderful wife and three highly energetic boys.

How do you hope to make a difference?

I just want to make a positive impact on the lives of students. If a student can leave my class in a better state than when they came to me, that's successful day to me.

What was your favorite subject in school?

 Social Studies

What is your background experience – degrees, experience, skills?

I have eight years of experience teaching high school social studies. I have a Master's Degree from USD in technology for education. I've served as an assistant high school football coach for six years.

I am a huge fan of Seinfeld and Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes cartoons.
