About Mr. Jared Speight
I graduated from UNC-Charlotte in 2008 with a B.A. in History with a concentration in Social Studies Education and a minor in American Studies. I completed by Student-Teaching at Central Cabarrus High School, home of the Vikings. There I spent a year with Jim Knight as my cooperating teacher and we taught World History.
When I graduated I worked at Overhills Middle School in Harnett County for three years as an 8th Grade Social Studies teacher. While there, I also helped coach the basketball and football teams. I have since moved to Guilford County where I taught 7th Grade Language Arts for two years and am now moving back to 7th Grade Social Studies at Northwest Middle School. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I work as the Head Football coach, Assistant for Track and Field, and the creator and teacher sponsor for the school's fantasy football club (Einstein's Elite Football League).
While teaching, I have also been continuing my own education. In December of 2011, I graduated with a Master of Science in Education with a specialty in K-12 Studies from Capella University. I am also currently pursuing my National Board Certification for Middle Grades Social Studies.
