Mrs. Converse

7th and 8th Grade History Pre-AP

Welcome...

Students and Parents

Welcome to History

I am excited for the new school year and I can't wait to meet you all! This is my third year in Bellville ISD. I am gracious to be in a school district like this one and to join this great community.

I graduated from Texas A&M (Gig'em) where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a minor in History. I have 26 years of teaching experience and can't wait to get started.

My conference periods are 3rd period on RED Days (11:08 - 11:53) and 8th period on WHITE Days (2:05-3:35). The best way to contact me is through email at tconverse@bellvillebrahmas.org but you can also reach me at (979) 865-5966.

I am looking forward to a great school year!

Sincerely,

Torri Converse
