Welcome, Mr. Sanders!

Sanders.630.jpg

I am proud to say I am product of the Okaloosa County School District.  As a student at Bob Sikes Elementary,
Richbourg Junior High and Crestview High School I gained a firm foundation to carry me to the many places I have been,”
said Sanders.

Jay began his teaching career in 1993 teaching sixth grade math at Baker School.  After spending three years at
Baker, he moved to Richbourg Middle School and then on to Davidson Middle School.  He transferred to Crestview High
School in 1999 where he would teach Geometry, Drop Out Prevention and Advanced Placement Economics. 
He also served as assistant to the athletic director. 

Sanders was named Teacher of the Year in 2011 and in 2013 was named the Dean of Students at Baker School. 
He became an Assistant Principal at Baker School in 2014.  

“As a coach,  I led the Richbourg Middle School boys basketball team to two County Championships, the Crestview
High School Girls basketball team to  its first District Championship in more than twenty years, the Cross Country team
at Crestview to State six years in a row, and  I coached the first undefeated ninth grade football team at Crestview,” said Sanders. 
“I believe educating students requires you to motivate students, making them do more than they believe they can.
  It is about instilling in them a work ethic and sense of pride.  It means taking care of the small details in order to be
successful. Most of all whether you are in the classroom, on the field, or in the front office, it is about giving it your best
and always doing what is right for the students.”

Jay holds a Bachelor degree in Business from Troy University and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership
from the University of Texas at Arlington.  He has been married to Stephanie Sanders for twenty eight years and
they have two children, Matt and Jacey. 

“My career has brought me full circle, and I am proud to say I am once again a Davidson Panther!” said Sanders. 

 

Have a Great Summer!.jpg
