My name is Aaron E. Hinkley. This is my second year teaching at HSLECJ. I am teaching three sections of AP World History, two sections of pre-AP World Geography, as well as one section of Government/Economics. I was born in Connecticut; I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have a B.A. summa cum laude in philosophy with a minor in European History from the University of Nevada Reno and an M.A. in philosophy from Rice University here in Houston, Texas, specializing in 19th and 20th Century European philosophy and the philosophy of religion. Previously, I had been a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at Rice University where I taught several 'Intro to philosophy' courses. I was, also, an adjunct instructor in philosophy at Houston Baptist University.
