My name is David Allen and I am a Criminal Justice Program and Residential Construction instructor. I hope that students will leave my classes being better prepared to succeed in the world. My goal is to challenge my students to become the best they can no matter where life takes them. I want them to be informed about the world around them and how they can be positive contributors to our community.

Hello all! My name is Shanna Cheatham and I am one of the criminal justice teachers at Maryville High School. Things in our society change rapidly and my desire as an educator is to prepare, encourage, and give students the tools they need to not just survive, but thrive in this ever changing world. Students are at such a pivotal point in their lives as they enter and go through high school, so as their teacher, I feel it is not only my duty, but my honor to fan into flame their desires, dreams and aspirations. Every student is capable. Every student is worth it. My joy is helping them get there through real life, hands on experience inside and outside the classroom.
