Announcing Upper School Art Teacher and Director of Security

Dear CA Families and Faculty & Staff,

I hope you all are having a great summer. As the new academic year nears, I am incredibly excited to begin my first year here at Clarksville Academy, my alma mater, as the Upper School art teacher and Director of Security.

I am a proud veteran full of military experience to include personal protection while contracted overseas in the Middle East, force protection officer, security officer for the United States military guarding military installations, and fundamentals of emergency management, leadership, and influence certification. [ also have a criminal justice degree with a concentration in Homeland Security and counter terrorism, and I completed this through Austin Peay State University.

Not only do I have a passion for security and protection, I also have a passion in teaching and art. I have taught and coached wrestling for CMCSS for the past five years.

As an alumni of Clarksville Academy, a teacher, head coach, and parent, I consider Clarksville Academy my home. 1 approach the role that I have been charged with at Clarksville Academy confidently knowing that my detailed understanding of Criminal Justice, protective security detail, working well with students and families, and military experience provides me with the competency to accomplish the goals of this position, providing assistance in the direction and operation of campus safety and security functions. A top priority would be to continue to increase the excellent reputation of Clarksville Academy. I can lead, as required, with integrity, wisdom, and high ethical standards by utilizing the skills I obtained as an instructor, security officer, and in the criminal justice field.

Throughout the summer months, I have worked with Dr. Drew collecting data, researching, and reviewing current plans to continue campus safety analysis. I extend to her my appreciation for charging me with this role and responsibility. I am excited to share my expertise for the benefit of our school community. Mrs. Hinote and I have also been meeting and working together to continue improvements at Clarksville Academy.

You will often hear that Clarksville Academy is a special place; its depth and character, traditions, commitment to academic excellence, as well as its beautiful natural surroundings. All of these contribute to making Clarksville Academy such an exemplary academic environment. We want your student to take full advantage of all Clarksville Academy has to offer.
