Welcome to Mr. Bornhauser's Homepage!
I am Mr. Bornhauser, or as most of you will call me, Mr. B. I will be your social studies teacher. This will be my 15th year teaching at Gentry and I can tell you that it is a wonderful school and you will definitely enjoy your experiences here!
I have lived in Columbia for the majority of my life and I am a product of the Columbia Public Schools just like many of you. I received my undergraduate degree in Secondary Education from Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. I was a starting offensive lineman on the football team while at Westminster and was a member of a team that set the NCAA records for passing yards and touchdowns in a season and one of my teammates won the Division III equivalent of the Heisman Trophy. Following this, I entered the Fellowship Program in Education through the University of Missouri, where I attained my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, while in my 1st year of teaching at Gentry. I also have a Master of Education in Athletics and Activities Administration from William Woods University. You will see me in a lot of places here at Gentry, because I am the Athletic Director, Head Football Coach, and a track coach.
I am married to Allison, whom works for University of Missouri Healthcare and I am the proud father of two young boys, Trey and TJ, and a beautiful 1-year-old girl, Katy. They are quite busy and active. I also have a border collie named Sadie, whom is very gentle and wonderful with my kids. My favorite hobby is fishing, but it doesn’t seem like I have very much time to do that anymore.I know that you will enjoy your time here at Gentry and that you will learn many things. Good
luck during your middle school years! Work hard and anything is possible.
