About Me

Welcome to my teaching profile page.  I am Mr. James and this is my fourth year teaching at Southwest High School.  I have been hired to teach multiple sections of Take Charge within the Business Department and could not be more excited to be teaching a class that has such real-world applications for every student.

Originally from Kansas, I earned my bachelor’s degree from Fort Hays State University where I majored in business management and computer information systems.  After college, I went to work for AGCO Corporation in Hesston, Kansas.  I moved to Lincoln in 2003 to begin coaching football at Doane College.  During my ten years (2003-2012) at Doane, I coached defensive line, defensive backs and coordinated our special teams.  While there, I completed my  master’s degree in management.  I turned my attention to earning my teaching certification at Concordia University in August of 2012.  While substitute teaching, I received the opportunity to student teach at Lincoln High School and finished this past spring.  My wife, Ginny, and I have a six-year old daughter Kaylee and we are enjoying our time visiting zoos, children’s museums and visiting every playground and park in Lincoln.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime during my planning block at (402) 436-1306 ext. 66268.  You can also reach me at bjames@lps.org and I will respond to any questions or concerns as soon as possible.
