Mangum, Samuel-Social Studies

Hello everyone, I'm Samuel Mangum, the head wrestling coach and AP Human Geography teacher here at Sharyland High School. I hail from the vibrant city of McAllen, Texas, where I was born and raised. My journey in education and athletics led me to Western Colorado State University, where I honed my skills and passion for both teaching and coaching. I'm thrilled to be part of this community and to contribute to the growth and success of our students both in the classroom and on the wrestling mat.

Description: Advanced Placement Human Geography is an introductory college course in human geography. The exam assumes that you have taken the equivalent of one semester of college-level preparation, with the understanding that at Sharyland, this is a full-year course. This course correlates to a typical introductory college course, whose purpose is to introduce you to a systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human’s understanding, use and alteration of Earth’s surface. You will look spatially at the Earth to analyze human’s organization of space and the consequences of their decisions. You will be looking for patterns across the cultural landscape, trying to identify trends, and anticipate future phenomena. You will also explore different methods and tools geographers use in their science and practice.
