About Mrs. Carol Clanton


2013 was one of the hardest of my life. I lost so many people two former students, brothers - in-law and sisters -in-law and the worst, my husband of 45 years, Doug Clanton. I have made it through and learned allot about this life and what I do. I love to teach and this will be my 31st year in the classroom. I am trying to stay here and do my 31st. What a milestone this will be. I coach the First Edition Speech and Debate team, teach Theatre I and this year English III.We are also doing the One Act Plays this year. 

I love to read and Lee Childs is my favorite author, along with Harlan Corban. I crochet and give out baby blankets to teachers here . 

My favorite quote is, " A student is not a vase to be filled , but a light to be lit."  I am going around setting fires all over the place. Some of them take.
