Mr. Darrell M. Hudson, Jr.
Hi, my name is Darrell Hudson and I've been teaching at OC for 13 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in History and a Master's in Education Administration and Leadership, both from Arizona State University. I am a native of Arizona, and due to that fact, I grew up going to the Arizona State University football games since I was 2 years old. I am a Sun Devil, and I was proud to be the mascot, Sparky, from 2004-2008, a span in which the football team went to a bowl game every year. I teach WHAP in Social Studies, and and I am also the director of the Academy of American Studies, an academic program which I've been a part of for 6 years now.
I'm also an avid fan of travel, and I have traveled both domestically and internationally. Some of my most memorable trips include going to the Mayan ruins in Belize, ziplining through the rainforest of Honduras, and going on safari in South Africa. I believe you learn more about yourself when you travel and you learn from the experiences than you can from just reading books.
