Dante Pinkard

Hello Cane Nation,

My name is Dante Pinkard. I am from Rome, Georgia. I am married to Chaja Pinkard (Counselor CHS). We have two kids. Jailyn Pinkard, (daughter), is currently in the sixth grade at CMS. Jaise Pinkard, (son), is currently in the second grade at CPS. I am entering my 10th 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 ELA resource and an inclusion co-teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. I am excited about joining the middle school basketball coaching staff. Lastly, I am eager to build legacies one student at a time.
