About Me

Hi.  My name is Michael Bardgett, aka Coach "Jett", and I was born and raised in San Antonio.  I received dual bachelors degrees in Political Science and International Studies from Austin College in Sherman, TX and a Master's degree in African Youth Development from The George Washington University in Washington, DC.  I am excited to join Cedar Park High School as an Advanced Placement World History ("WHAP") teacher.  I am coming to Cedar Park from Highland Park High School in Dallas.  This is my ninth year as a teacher and fourth teaching WHAP.  I truly enjoy studying and teaching about the history of the world.  I have had the good fortune of seeing history in action through my travels to over 20 countries in Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.  My favorite vacation spots are the beaches of Lake Malawi and the incredible vistas of Cape Town, South Africa.  I have a handsome chocolate lab named Tim who is my best friend as well as 3 nieces and a nephew who thinks I'm the biggest toy in the world.
