Mr. Williams isn't a mystery, he's the journalism teacher in room 115. He teaches sixth grade journalism, seventh grade newspaper and eighth grade yearbook. He thinks he has way too much fun than should be allowed.
He started his journalism career in high school where he was a reporter and Opinion Editor. He started out as a double major in news-ed and journalism design, but that was just too much. While reporting a fire that took place at one of the art buildings, in the pouring rain, he decided that being a reporter wasn't exactly the life he wanted. So, he switched to education where he could continue to experience it all: writing, photography and design.
He received Bachelor of Arts in Journalism Education at Ball State University. While he was there, he worked on the Ball State Daily News as a reporter, columnist and an assistant news editor. He also worked in the BSU Journalism Workshops where he got to meet up with fellow journalism educators, worked with high school and middle school students, and promoted scholastic journalism.
When he's not training the Clay MS journalists, he enjoys playing with his two Shelties, Nigra and Maeve, and adores llamas and alpacas (they're his favorite animal), is a big fan of The New York Times. He actually saw it in person, finally, in a recent trip to the Big Apple.
He writes in his free time. He believes that a writing teacher should definitely write on the side. He also dabbles in professional photography (portrature) and, weirdly enough, has two sewing machines. He can actually use them, too.
