Mr. Troy Williams
This is my 23rd year as a teacher and my 12th year here at Rockwall High School. I am married to Ewa and we have three Children. Ben, the oldest is 32 and is a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom where he was an Electrician's Mate on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. Julian is 23 and is a graduate of RHS. Ingmar is 14 and attends Rockwall High School. We have a Red Heeler/Lab named Daisy.
I love teaching and in adition to that I love languages. I had French, Spanish and German in high school. In college I took Swedish and Dutch. While in College I also attempted to learn Icelandic and spent two weeks at the Univeristy of Iceland. My wife, who is Polish has helped along the way to learn a smattering of Polish and I continue with my almost life-long love of Afrikaans.
I received my Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree from Harvard University. I also attended the Freie Universität Berlin for two semesters. It was an exciting time watching Germany and specifically Berlin sew itself back together after 50 years of division.
Although I am the German teacher at RHS, I feel that I don't just teach German; I teach kids. I feel fortunate to be able to do so. This year, I have the pleasure of teaching Creative Writing and English III
