The Cheatham County School District has named Brian Black as the new dean of students at East Cheatham Elementary School.
Black, who most recently taught at Harpeth High School, is a 2006 graduate of Millikin University in Decatur, Ill., where he earned a bachelor's degree in secondary education-social sciences.
He began his teaching career as a special-needs paraprofessional at Attea Middle School in 2006 and gained a full-time teaching position at Springstead High School in Spring Hill, Fla., in 2007.
He has taught high school in Tennessee for the last seven years, including the past four at HHS.
Black said, "I am really excited to begin this new adventure at East Cheatham Elementary School. I will miss the day-to-day interactions with the faculty and students at Harpeth High School. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to build new relationships with the students and staff at East Cheatham Elementary, and I'm ready to begin this new adventure."
Black lives in Nashville with wife, Janna, daughter, Addison, and their four-year-old dog, Stella.
