Hello. My name is Jim Deignan and this will be my 26th year teaching children. I began my career as an English teacher at Warren County High School in 1997 and taught English and Journalism. From 2000 to 2015, I worked at Clarke County High School, where I taught English 12, IB English 12, Philosophy, Theory of Knowledge, and Journalism. I received my degree in Special Education in 2015, and taught special education English and Civics at Aylor Middle School for the last 7 years. This is my first year at Daniel Morgan Middle School, where I will be co-teaching 7th grade English.
I live in Stephens City, Virginia with my wife and 3 children, and our 3 dogs. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, biking, fishing, going to the beach, and listening to music. I also play guitar.
