Roane County High School

Mr. Jona Bringhurst » Bio


Having recently moved my family from Washington State to Tennessee, I am very excited to begin a new chapter in my educational journey here at Roane County High School! For the past ten years I have had the privilege of teaching and mentoring college students as part of a campus ministry at Washington State University in Pullman, WA. My wife and I met at WSU as undergraduate students and it was a wonderful experience to serve there and help other students navigate through their college years. Prior to that, having received a Bachelors degree in Creative Writing and a Masters degree in Secondary Education (at WSU), I taught High School English at a private school in Southern California for 3 years. Whether I am teaching High School students or working with college students, I am passionate about teaching and inspiring others to reach their full potential in school and in life. RCHS is a great school and I look forward to contributing to this wonderful community. Here's to a great school year full of inspiration and achievement!
