Coach Durham's Homepage

Welcome back to the 2022-2023 school year. I am excited to get to know and work with each of you as we begin an unprecedented year together! This is my eighth year of teaching, all of which have been here at Lakeside. It is truly a pleasure to teach in a school that consistently offers a stellar work and learning environment.

My passion has always been history. After listening to stories from my grandfathers, who both fought in the Second World War, and my parents, who grew up during the 1960's, I knew that I wanted to enter into a career related to history. Therefore, I strive in my classes to make history come alive, and relate it to my students in a way that causes them to feel a connection with the past.

I have been married to my beautiful wife Taffy Durham for eight years. She is also a teacher at South Columbia Elementary. We have two wild and wonderful children, Anderson and Savannah, and our oldest child is a Miniature Schnauzer named Cooper. We love spending time outside at the beach, lake and river. On Saturdays in the fall, you can find us cheering on the Dawgs!

I look forward to meeting and working with all of you during the coming school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns that you have during the year. I am usually very quick to return emails, and I am available for phone and/or in-person conferences. As we deal with the uncertainties of the global pandemic, please be flexible this year as this will be a new experience for all of us. We are in this together!
