Hello and thank you for taking the time to come see page. My name is Mr. Doug Euper
and I teach Economics and U.S. History. I absolutely love the subjects I teach and hope to
ignite a fire in my students that will help them in their studies this year and in the future for
them to carry along.
My roots—not far from here, stem in sunny and happy Huntington Beach, where I spent
most of my childhood, growing late into my teen years. I have very fond memories of my
high school years and would like each student to try and be the best that they can ever be.
After graduating high school, I attended The College of Idaho on an athletic scholarship.
I majored in history and played college baseball for Idaho.
I have always felt history as inspiring because it involves ordinary people doing
extraordinary things, and this specifically encouraged me in my pursuance of an education
in the subject of History while at The College of Idaho. In my education, I have grown to
find and understand that History helps the world turn and helps people as well. History
remains an unending necessary cycle for the sake of learning. None of the other school
subjects would be written without history. Further on, in teaching Economics, I have found
that its basis remains in logic and reason, providing the ability to make sense of the world
around me and others. Moving along in my college career, I also experienced an
outstanding career as a pitcher for the Coyote baseball team while in college, and later went
on to become a four-time All-Timber-Prairie Athletic Conference selection, earning NAIA All-
America honors. As I mentioned before in loving the subjects I teach, I currently hold the
career record for saves and appearances in school history at the College of Idaho.
Currently, I am also the club advisor for Project Angkor, which is a medical mission that
provides the underserved people of Cambodia. Last year, our club helped raise about a
thousand dollars which allowed us to buy school uniforms for an orphanage in the Kep
Province of Cambodia. This year we have raised over a thousand dollars that will go to buy
rice and noodles for yet another Province in Cambodia. Project Angkor has also brought
together medical professionals and our students to expose students to careers in the
medical field. Project Angkor is a wonderful charity that I am pleased to be a part of. Feel
free to learn more about Project Angkor here: http://projectangkor.org/overview/
Lastly, I am an extremely proud father. I have two championship boys named Calvin and
Casey. I enjoy spending time with my two championships, running, biking, eating, reading
nonfiction, daily learning, and overall—life—on my spare time, and making myself better at
what I do as a professional instructor. I really am the luckiest guy in the world—Never waste
a day, for every day, history is made.
Remember, each individual, but especially a student, has the key to their own success!
