James P. Dewell, II


This is my fifth year at Topeka High School in the Social Sciences Department, where I have taught Government, Economics, World Geography, and World History. 

I earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees from Washburn University (GO BODS!!), in History and Political Science. Though I have lived in Topeka since 1992, originally I am from Arkansas City, KS, where I grew up on a small farm and graduated from Arkansas City High School, participating four years in varsity football, three years in varsity golf, Jazz Band, and Symphonic Band.

My other interest lie in the outdoors, politics, reading, golf, and enjoying Big XII football and basketball.


Extra-Curricular: Student Government (StuGo) Sponsor, and Men's Assistant Golf Coach.
