Hello My Name Is...
Mr. Eric Olszewski
This is my 19th year in the classroom as an English instructor, during which time I have taught everything from Freshman Literature, Senior AP, and Dual Credit courses to Creative Writing, Gothic and Science Fiction Literature, and College Preparatory classes. I am also employed by El Paso Community College as an adjunct evening faculty member. I was named Burges High School Teacher of the Year for the 2014-2015 school year and similarly honored as a finalist for EPISD District Teacher of the Year. I am the current Department Chair for our Language Arts Department at Burges High School and hold a masters degree in English and American Literature with a concentration on Poe studies. My interests include late 19th Century American History, the study of parapsychology, and I maintain an abiding love for music and film. In what little spare time I have left, I am presently at work on my second novel.
Conference Period: 3 p.m. to 3:50 p.m.
