Trevor Darden

This Pirate Educator would like to change the course of history, one child at a time.

Trevor DardenTrevor Darden has a unique way of incorporating his love of history into most conversations. He weaves countless quotes from famous historical figures into his rhetoric with ease and purpose. This natural ability has helped Darden, a History Education major, grab his students' attention during his senior internship at D.H. Conley High School. "I want to make learning history fun for my students so they don't make the same mistakes in the future that others have made," he shares. Then Darden makes sure his point comes across by reciting one of the many quotes he has memorized, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (George Santayana)

Originally from Gates, North Carolina, Darden did not start his college career as a History Education student. "I had all of these classes for my other major and I wasn't doing well. My wheels were spinning in the mud and I wasn't going anywhere" he reveals. "I had to look back over my life and examine what I enjoyed doing and the answer was-teaching."
