Mr. Clanton


About me

I was born and raised in Valdese, NC. I am a graduate of East Burke High School and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have played various sports since childhood, and I continue to play today. My love of sports led me to obtain a degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a concentration in Sports Management.

I worked in recreation for eight years coordinating athletic programs and coaching, before becoming part of the Warrior family. Coaching gave me a chance to work with kids and the community, and I enjoyed it immensely. The time I spent in recreation influenced my decision to take a step into the realm of education because I was able to teach kids, not just the fundamentals of a particular sport, but skills that could be used outside of sports: teamwork, working hard to achieve a goal, understanding and overcoming failure, and finding something that makes you feel successful.
