My name is Chris Morgan.  I am married to Tiffany and have two little girls, Kyleigh and Katie. I served in the Army for 10+ years and did many jobs but I was primarily a Military Police Officer and CID Special Agent.  During my time in the military I was fortunate enough to obtain my Associates Degree in General Studies from Central Texas College and my Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from American Military University.  After numerous years in the service I was medically retired and became an NCIS Special Agent.  I enjoyed my time as a federal law enforcement officer but always felt the desire to teach. This is my second year with Lake Creek High School and I will be teaching Criminal Justice.  I am the Head Coach for the Men’s Soccer Team and the Varsity CB Football Coach.  I look forward to being a Lion and even more so at what the Lions can accomplish.
