Donna Latham has been teaching History and Geography at Clarksville Christian School since 2008. Mrs. Latham came to CCS from the Cheatham County School System where she taught 8th grade history for 14 years. She graduated from Austin Peay State University in 1994 with a Bachelors degree in History and a minor in Geography. She also received her Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from APSU in 1999 and is certified with ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International). She is certified to teach elementary grades 1-8 and History and Geography for grades 7-12.
She is married to her husband, Jimmy, who is a nurse anesthesist for Anesthesia Medical Group in Nashville. She and Jimmy have four beautiful children: Jacob, Macy, Griffin, and Camden.
She and her family are active members at the Joelton Church of Christ. Some of their past service ministries include Little Lamb’s Bible Time, VBS, Life Group, fishing tournament, and food coordination. In her spare time, she enjoys scrapbooking, gardening, photography, and spending time with friends. She has also led student travel in Europe and hopes to do it again in the future.
Mrs. Latham states that she loves teaching at CCS and will teach each student the way she would want her own children to be taught. She states, “The ultimate goal of my Christian walk is to be as Christ-like as possible, and to bring as many people to Him as I can. I believe Christ brought a message of love and forgiveness, as well as one of perserverence and discipline. I hope to show my students that His way is far better than anything the world has to offer. I desire to teach teens that have reached the age where worldly things are becoming extremely attractive. Through Biblical teaching and my own personal example, I want my teens to see the joy that comes from doing God’s will and know the happiness of a servant heart.”
She continues, “History is full of examples of how moral decay can lead to physical and spiritual suffering. It also shows us that when we follow God’s plan, we can prosper both individually and as a society. I hope to use these examples in guiding my students to learn from past mistakes in order to secure a bright future.”
