Michael Pullen


I am entering my  fourth year of teaching and coaching at HPHS, and this is my 9th year in education. Currently, I teach both Standard and Pre-Ap World Geography. In addition to my classroom responsibilities, I am the Head Softball Coach at HP, and have served as the Varsity Assistant to the softball team for two previous years.  Prior to coming to Highland Park, I taught and coached four years in Palmer ISD teaching Texas and US History, coaching Football and Head Golf Coach. In addition to HP and Palmer, I spent one year at Terrell ISD teaching Texas History, and coaching Football and Baseball. 


I am a 1997 graduate from HPHS and a 2004 graduate from Ole Miss. In 2016 I completed my masters degree in educational leadership from Texas A&M - Commerce. My wife, and fellow HPHS teacher and alumni, Rachel Pullen, and I have two children, Ben (8) is a third grader at Hyer Elementary, and Bradley (4) attends University Park Elementary Pre-K.
