John S. Gaston
Associate Professor of Education, Director of Secondary Education
My name is John Gaston and I work in the department of education. This is my 40th year teaching young people, and every year has been a pleasure. I graduated from UTK with a BS in science and taught in the public schools for 23 years as well as being an administrator for 7 years. I also coached high school women’s basketball and soccer during my time as a chemistry and physics teacher in Georgia and Roane county, Tennessee.
I am in my 9th year at Tennessee Wesleyan. I am an Associate Professor in the department of education and teach all of the middle school and secondary education courses. I have a Masters degree as well as an EdS from Tennessee Tech in Instructional Leadership. I also work as co coordinator for the Office of Students with Disabilities. I am extremely passionate about education and look forward to sharing my decades of experience with you!
