(ABC 6 News) -- This weeks Excellent Educator is Eric Vaughn.
"I love working with everyone here," says Vaughn. He loves teaching social studies too.
"Social studies is the best subject," he teases, a subject he has been teaching for thirteen years in the Austin School District.
Currently he teaches at Ellis Middle School.
"World history has been something that has surprised me and I didn't think that students would enjoy it as much as they do."
And Vaughn says he uses every tool he can to keep his lessons interesting.
"I have great friends like National Geographic Channel and History Channel and all sorts of things that kids like and they talk about those things."
It never fails.
