Trevon Lamar is in his fifth year of teaching Social Studies. For the first three years of his career, he taught in Columbia, SC, and moved to the Atlanta metro area last school year. At Shiloh, Lamar teaches US History and AP US History and searches for ways to allow students to learn the importance and value of Social Studies in connection to the real world. He has had the honor of teaching amazing students, allowing his passion for education to continue growing. The best part of his job is seeing students make real work connections to US History and their everyday lives. The lightbulb moments are perhaps the best part of teaching, besides forming professional relationships with students that last beyond their high school careers. He also serves as the advisor to the Shiloh Student Leadership Team, Gwinnett Student Leadership Team, and the IB Club.
Lamar received his undergraduate degree at Augusta University in Augusta, Ga, and his Master's Degree in Education at the University of South Carolina: Columbia. It is worth noting that he is also the first person in his family to go to college.
