Principal's Bio



Educational Experience

I hold an Education Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership.  I served as math teacher, coach, assistant principal, and principal in the Hale County School System.  I served six years as principal at Hale County High School.  Additionally, I served as principal of Thomasville High School, Tuscaloosa Middle School, and Rock Quarry Middle School.  I served as the first principal of Rock Quarry Middle School for three years in the Tuscaloosa City School System. 


I believe that all children can learn given the circumstance needed by the learner.  I believe that teaching is an art that can be enhanced by learning the skills needed to instruct.  I believe that the 21st Century learner has to be apt in skills of information acquisition and the ability to present the information through many avenues. 


I am married to Karen Anderson Clayton and am the proud father of two sons Battle(11), Landers(9), and Peyton(miniature schnauzer).  I am originally from Eutaw, Alabama.  I am an alum of the University of Alabama.  I have served the public schools of Alabama as a math teacher, assistant principal, and principal.  My hobbies include camping with my family in our camper trailer and watching Alabama football.  We are extremely excited to be in the Madison City Schools.
