About Mrs. Gwyn

My name is Dana Gwyn.  I teach Language Arts for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades.  This is my second year at Cheatham Middle School.  However, I have been teaching for 20 years.  I absolutely LOVE my job.  I could not imagine doing anything else. 

I am married to Wade, who is the Worship Pastor at our church (Unity Covenant Church). We  have 6 children, ages 1, 4, 14, 17, 21, 23. We are very proud of our children.  Our 23 year old serves in the US AirForce.  Our 21 year old serves in the US Navy.  Our 17 year old is a Senior this year (oh my!) and plays soccer.  Our 14 year old is in the eighth grade and plays football.  Our little ones just keep growing like flowers.  We also have a few boys from our church that live with us; they are 15, 17, and 18.  As you can probably tell, we are a very busy family.

My mission is to help students develop confidence in themselves and discover their strengths; then help them use this to develop a love for learning.

This statement is my mission for myself and for my students.  I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child and I am honored to be a part of that village.  I believe that together (teachers, students, parents, administration, community), we can make it a successful year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at the school (615-792-2334) or send me an email (dana.gwyn@ccstn.org).  I look forward to a wonderful year.
