Mr. Dalton Quick

Hello, everyone! My name is Dalton Quick, and I am a high school teacher in the Department of Social Sciences at Waynesville High School.

I’m a graduate of the University of Missouri, Columbia, where I earned degrees in strategic communication and psychology. After working as a research administrator at Boone Hospital Center, where I oversaw all of the clinical research in biomedical and behavioral medicine, I went on to earn a master’s degree in psychology from Stony Brook University in 2018. At Stony Brook, I worked with Dr. Kristin Bernard, a leading clinical researcher who studies the development of children and young adults who are the victims of trauma and neglect. After graduating, I wanted to move into a field where I could continue making a difference in the lives of young people, and - because of this - took a job at my alma mater, Plato High School, where I taught language arts and psychology for two years. As cliche as it sounds, this experience was all it took for me to fall in love with education. Currently, I am seeking a master’s degree in gifted education from the University of Missouri, Columbia.

I have taught English 1, College Writing, Career Writing, Journalism, Dual Credit Psychology, Lifespan Developmental Psychology, and Advanced Literature.

I enjoy traveling, reading, kayaking, and - especially - hiking in my free time. I’m a life long learner who loves any chance that I get to educate, learn, and grow.
