FACULTY & STAFF

Who We Are
Our approach is not radical, it’s personal – to us, to our students, to our families and to the community we serve. And it begins with our faculty and staff.

From Our Director

Clintonville Academy has been my second home for several years now, and I couldn’t be happier. My family and I fell in love with CA when we enrolled our youngest son in the PreK program in 2015 – and haven’t looked back since.

From the moment we stepped through these doors, it felt like family. I volunteered every week and got to see the school community and incredible faculty first hand – and knew we’d found something special. The students are fantastic and the families are highly involved and invested. And the teachers – where do I even begin? They  love what they do, and are fully engaged as creative and collaborative educators. And I’m thrilled to say Clintonville Academy gives them to a place to truly focus on teaching and developing their students with intention.

We like to say around here “CA Shines” . . . because it’s true, due in large part to the quality and character of our teachers.

Teachers like – Mrs. Quehl, who’s been here for 34 years. 34 years!

Teachers like – Mrs. Johnson, our middle school reading teacher, who’s mother was a teacher here.

Teachers like – Mrs. Kitts, who was first a student here while her mom was the school nurse! Then, her daughter was a student, and now she is our incredible PreK teacher.

I could go on about each and everyone of our faculty, how they support each other, sharpen each other, and are the heartbeat of this community. I’m pleased to introduce each of them below, and would be happy to answer any questions you may have about your student’s teacher – especially if you’re considering joining us for the first time.

– Amy Williams
