About Thomas Cox
I was born and raised in Beeville, TX. Beeville is home to me, and I take a lot of pride in my home. That means taking a lot of pride in my alma mater, A.C. Jones High School, where I graduated from in 2002. After High School, I attended Coastal Bend College and then Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, earning 2 Associates Degrees and a Bachelors Degree along the way. After being in both the public and private sectors of the workforce for over 12 years, I started looking for a more permanent career. A conversation between myself and Asst. Principal Mrs. DelBosque at A.C. Jones resulted in my getting the opportunity to teach the Speech courses while earning my Certification to teach. I have since gotten my Texas Teaching Certification in Speech 7-12 in February 2016.
I love being back at A.C. Jones, even though it's changed a bit since 2002. I love coming back and seeing teachers I've taken classes under and getting to now call them colleagues.
I had gastric bypass surgery in July 2016, and since then I have lost over 190 pounds. I am still overweight and have a long way to go, but I am continually making progress and am proud of how far I’ve come.
In my personal life, I love to read and study, especially the Bible and Christian History. I love playing disc golf and bowling when I get the chance.
I married my best friend Andrea in December 2008. We currently have no children, but we do have four furbabies, our Jack Chi mix-breed dog named Cali, our Pyball Dachsund named Quincy, a black cat named Coal, and a white kitten named Sweety.
Thank you for your interest!
