Mr. John Pointer
Hello, my name is John Pointer and I have been teaching at Clayton High School since the 2006-2007 school year. I have a B.A. in History/Education from NCSU with a special interest in Archaeology, United States environmental history and World Cultures. I also have a degree in Criminal Justice. After years working in the banking industry, I returned to school in order to change careers and become a teacher. I enjoy a variety of hobbies including woodworking, playing/building guitars and gaming.
I have been married for 23 years. I have an 18 year-old daughter who loves art, swimming in the ocean and playing in her school's marching band. I also have a 16 year old son who loves video games, hanging out with friends, and making people laugh.
We are beach-people. During the summer months, my family and I can be found in Fenwick Island, Delaware - a nice, quiet family beach town where the sand meets the waves.
