    My name is Michael Clarington and I will be working with students in the EBD classroom. I am originally from Miami, Florida and I have been an educator since 2006. I have a Master's of Special Education and an Educational Doctorate the field of Special Education. I have worked in several career fields and I feel that I have a number of life experiences that help me to enhance the lives of my students. During my time as an educator I have taught a number of subjects, but English is my favorite.
    Educational Philosophy: I believe all students are capable of achieving success in the classroom, which will enhance their lives as adults.
    I graduated from Howard University with a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). I later attended Grand Canyon University for my graduate studies, where I received a Masters of Special Education (MSPED). I am now pursuing a educational doctorate at Grand Canyon University with a focus in Special Education.
    In my personal experience, I have served as the Executive Director of a non-profit organization and I have owned several businesses. It was my experience with young adults entering into the workforce, lacking the necessary skills to sustain employment, that led me to enter into the field of education. 
    I'm looking forward to the growth of my students, which will make for a successful year!

    Hold fast to dreams
    For if dreams die
    Life is a broken-winged bird
    That cannot fly.
    Hold fast to dreams
    For when dreams go
    Life is a barren field
    Frozen with snow.
