He is Director of Principal Development with Epic Charter Schools, was Principal at Tulakes Elementary School for 10 years, and currently Pastor at The Parish Church.

We are all connected to One Universal Spirit.
Emotions – Clinton Patton is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters Degree in Human Relations. He privately practices therapy in our community, founded the Ashley Renae Hamilton Foundation, and has agreed to cover the topic of Emotions. His goal is encouraging students to seek healthy coping mechanisms and to avoid being a party in an abusive relationship.
Literacy – Stephanie Henson has taught at schools in both Canada and the United States. She is a former English teacher of Westmoore High School with a Masters Degree in Family Life Education. Stephanie will be covering the topic of Literacy; emphasizing how literacy connects individuals to a more successful community by contributing societal behaviours, truths and norms to economic growth, enhanced cultural diversity, and reduced crime and poverty.
Finance – Joe James, a Financial Educator from Tinker Federal Credit Union will cover the topic of Finance. With a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance, he will simplify the process of creating investment accounts with the objective of relating consumerism to life-goal decision making. Bank accounts are important, but investing in a portfolio and trading stock are stronger ways of investing in a healthy and secure financial future.
