My name is James Layman and I am a History teacher within the Boys Ranch School District. While I have only been teaching at the Boys Ranch school district for five years, I did work for Boys Ranch for 14 years through various different roles. I received my Bachelors degree from WTAMU in 2012 after many years of trying to balance school, work, and family. My passion for history began with my Papa's WWII stories. It's not often that veterans like to talk about war, but because mine was brave enough to share his experiences with me, my passion to learn more about our nation's history was born. Along with teaching, I also coach 3 varsity sports here at BRISD. Currently, I am also working on my Masters in Educational Leadership.
