Mr. Clif Dantzler
This is my 16th year as an educator in working with students in small group settings. I worked 4 years in Lexinton Two (Busbee Middle), 4 years in District Five (Dutch Fork Middle), took a year sabitical in pursuit of my call to the ministry, return to teaching for 4 years in Richland District One (WA Perry), and currently back in Disrtict Five, starting my 4th year here at Irmo Middle.
I instruct Learning Strategies for resourced students in math and reading, as well as targeted curriculum of affective behavior lessons.
I have both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks)! This school year I will began a non-graduate online degree for Project-Based Learning, also from the University of South Carolina.
Iam an active member in my church and community. I enjoy music, singing, basketball, chess and event photography-videography. I have served as Chess Club Advisor at Irmo Middle School for the past three years. Additionally, I co-host the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) at Irmo Middle, and assist with the Boys Basketball team.
If my colleagues had to describe me in one word....I suspect it would be - Love!!! I love students, I love my family, I love mankind, I love God, I love teaching, and I truly love inspiring students, to whatever degree it takes...to become overcomers! My genuine heart of gold for the students is a 'game changer" for most!!!
