Mr. Nathan McClallen
Mr. McClallen grew up in Southern Illinois and attended community college locally before transferring to Hillsdale College in Michigan, where he majored in Economics and earned a certificate in Journalism while serving as the Sports Editor of the Hillsdale Collegian. His most memorable class was a summer session covering British Literature in which a small group of students discussed Shakespeare for three hours a day. Upon graduation, he began teaching Ancient and Medieval History at a classical liberal arts charter school in Arizona. In subsequent years, he has added Economics, 20th-century American and World History, and Physical Education to his teaching repertoire, teaching every grade from 6 to 12. Due to his belief in the value of competition and passion for creating healthy sports programs, he has coached 6 different sports and 16 total seasons in his teaching career. He is proud to be a founding faculty member of Founders Classical Academy of Leander.
