Keith R.

Houston, Texas, United States

Hi everyone. I am a retired professor and teacher.

I taught in middle and high schools, colleges, and universities. I began teaching history and social science classes in August 1981 and continued to December 2015. This led to a comfortable segue into conducting tours by 2000 to share with tourists the information that I had been teaching. I have three collegiate degrees and multiple teaching certificates. I will inundate you with information about the history, government, politics, diversity, growth, economy, businesses, demography, climate, geography, topography, sociology, arts and architecture, taxation, transit, and more of the area and Texas. I will share stories with you about famous and infamous Texans; some are true, some are folklore. I have a dry sense of humor. My intent is to entertain and educate you. I enjoy sharing knowledge with you so that you have a good time and will want to return to or stay longer in our fair city.

Keith was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. He customized our tour of Galveston and Houston based on our interests. We would highly recommend him.
