Middle School (7-8)
7th/8th Grade Teacher
My name is Clayton Baumgartner and I am originally from northern California. My wife and I moved here in June of 2020 and are so excited to be residents of the Quad-City area! I am so happy to be a part of the Skyview School team in the heart of beautiful Prescott, Arizona.
I have a wide range of education: I graduated in 2012 with a BA in Literature and a BA in Philosophy from Mount Angel College in Oregon. Later, I student Divinity and Scripture at St. Patrick's University just south of San Francisco before pursuing my Teaching Credential from Brandman University in Irvine, CA. I have been credentialed in teaching English since 2019 and finally finished my graduate studies journey in General Theology (World Religions) this past May. I am currently working on my MA in English from the University of Texas (online).
When I am not teaching, I am known to either be lost in a book (preferably fiction), my music, or even out on a trail somewhere exploring the earth with my wife. I love sports, too! With any luck, i hope to have many (friendly) conversations about my sports teams allegiances!
