Welcome to WOHS 2017-18

Dear White Oak High School Students and Parents:

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this blog of introduction to you as the newly appointed Assistant Principal at White Oak High School. It is my privilege and honor to join the White Oak School community. I am looking forward to an exciting year getting to know all of the White Oak students and working with you, the parents and community members.

I would like to take the opportunity to tell the White Oak community a little about myself. I began my educational career 9 years ago at Lynn Lucas Middle School in Willis, Texas as a coach and Texas History teacher. I did that for one year before being moved to Willis High School as the a coach and US History teacher. After working at Willis High School for two years I had the opportunity to move closer to my wife’s family in East Texas as well as serve as a head coach for the first time. For the last six years I have been the head softball coach/assistant football coach at Carthage High School. While at Carthage I taught World Geography as well as Professional Communication. I have been married for 10 years to my beautiful wife Jessica and have two children, Shelby who is seven years old, and Brooklyn, who is 4 years old.

Working alongside the educators and community members at White Oak, I will strive everyday to provide a “this century education” for each student who attends our school. I will work to promote a positive school culture and safe learning environment, each day.

I look forward to an incredible year ahead! Go Roughnecks!
My door is always open, please come by and introduce yourself.

Matt Folmar
