Mr. Jay Conkin teaches U.S. History, Geography, Personal Finance, Economics and Marketing. Jay graduated from Sullivan South High School before playing football at Wheaton College. He then earned a Bachelor's of Art from East Tennessee State University and a Master's degree from Milligan.
Jay knew from a young age that he always wanted to work in an educational environment. Mr. Conkin joined the DBE faculty in January of this past year, and he has been a tremendous asset thus far.
When Mr. Conkin is not spending time working in the classroom, he enjoys hiking, fishing, playing with his Golden Doodle, Zoey, and traveling with his wife, Emilee. You will also find Jay coaching on the football field or reading up on WWII history.
Mr. Conkin loves that DBE has a modern, open environment for students, but also for the teachers, as well. He thinks that DBE's staff is both top-notch and world-class, and he cannot imagine himself working anywhere else! For this reason, we are glad that Mr. Conkin is a part of the DBE Tribe.
