Bryant, Donna
Social Studies Teacher

I attended Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas and Pellissippi State Technical Community College in Knoxville, TN. I graduated from Austin Peay State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History with a concentration in Political Science and Psychology. My minor in in secondary education. I then studied administration and supervision at Tennessee State University grading with a Masters in Arts.

I worked at Charlotte Middle School for 5 years teaching US History before moving to DCHS in 2005. I have taught US History, Early American History, Ancient History, World History and now Psychology.

Before teaching, I worked in business and sales. I am particularly drawn to advertising and computer arts. My experience in business has informed much of my emphasis in preparing students for not only college but an active and competitive work force.

I work as a sponsor for the History Club, BETA club and DC Travelers. Our faculty helps to identify students for our travel abroad program. We have been traveling with student to foreign countries since 2013.

Curtis Southerland
Southerland, Curtis
Fine Arts Teacher

As an art educator, I strive to provide the highest quality learning environment and opportunity to students by means of preparation, constant planning and reflection that will allow student mastery of daily objectives. The design and goal of my classroom is to make students feel safe and comfortable while preparing them for the responsibility and expectations of the real world. Honest communication to self and each other is the classroom's foundation for learning together and building strong student/teacher relationships. Mistakes are expected as part of the learning process and responded to in a constructive way. A rigorous classroom is evident every day as students show accountability and problem-solving skills through daily group interactions.

I obtained my formal education from Freed-Hardeman University, University of Tennessee, and Austin Peay State University and hold a Bachelors in Fine Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies, with a focus in non-profit administration and also a Masters in Education. Experience includes: nine years of private instruction, six years as a corporate gallery curator, ten years teaching at the public elementary level, as well as my current position at DCHS.

Agriculture - Career & Technical Teacher
My Name is Jason Wallace, Agriculture Teacher at Dickson County High School. I am a 2000 graduate of McEwen High School, where I was active in the FFA and played varsity baseball. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Education from Tennessee Tech University (#wingsup) in 2005. I served as a State FFA Officer from 2001-2002. I received a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.

I enjoy teaching Agriculture, as it is our nations oldest and most important industry. I have a deep passion for the FFA and the impact it has on students' lives. My classroom goals include teaching you what you want to be, what you don't want to be and how to be a productive citizen no matter your chosen career.

I still live in Mcewen, with my lovely wife and two wonderful children. My hobbies include hunting, fishing and farming.
