Dante Pinkard

Hello Cane Nation,

My name is Dante Pinkard. I am entering my tenth year as an educator. I graduated from Jacksonville State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Leadership with an approved minor in Physical Education. I received my Master of Education in Special Education from Grand Canyon University. I received my Specialist degree in Special Education from the University of West Georgia. I will serve as an eighth-grade special education English Language Arts resource teacher. Additionally, I will push-in and co-teach (2) English Language Arts classes and a Georgia Studies class for the 2023-2024 school year. I am ecstatic to begin the school year, and I am in great anticipation of the upcoming basketball season. I would like to wish my wife, (Dr. Pinkard), my kids, (Jailyn and Jaise), and all of #CaneNation a school year full of enriching engagements. Lastly, I am eager to build legacies one student at a time.
