MR. KNOTT'S PROFILE

I am currently on my 25th year of teaching. WOW! that is a long time. That means that I have taught over 21,000 classes. I really enjoy my job. There are challenges, just like in any other job. But, the challenges I conquer are changing the lives of young people. I would be hard pressed to find a job that I would enjoy more.  
 
I earned a Bachelor"s degree in Education at Arkansas State University, with an endorsement in Science.  I taught two years in West Memphis, Arkansas, teaching science.  My third year of teaching, I moved to Cheatham County.  I taught one more year of science.  Norma Beshears noticed my artistic skill. When Cheatham Middle was built, she wanted to make me the art teacher.  I attended two more years of school at Austin Peay, NashvilleTech, and Tennessee State University, to gain my endorsement for art.
 
Art is my usual escape. It is the activity that I use to get away sometimes.  But, I am also into exercise and motorcycle riding.  I try to make it to the gym three times a week. I often wake up early to exercise as well . I find it a great way to start the day.  My motorcycle is my biggest toy.  I love to go out riding and get lost.  Literally get lost to the point that I really do not know where I am.  I have often ended up in another state, not even knowing.  
 
I been married to my beautiful wife Christy for going on 25 years now.  We have 20 year old son that I very proud of.  He is an amazing photographer, and this year he is attending the New York Film Academy in Australia.  
 
I love the challenge of teaching art.  My favorite thing to see is when a student has worked very had, and when they are finished, they have truly impressed themselves.  I know everybody loves that feeling.  I want my students to become self motivators and discover the benefits of working hard and doing their best. That is a trait that can't be given.  It can only be created by them.  
 
Thank you for allowing me to teach your child.
