REMEMBER: Locally I got this first.
He begins the position on January 10, 2022. He was the whipping dude during his 8 years as Director of Schools in Knox County, in my humble opinion.
Belmont Provost Dr. Thomas Burns said, “Jim McIntyre has demonstrated excellence and achieved successful outcomes in every role he’s tackled, setting himself apart as a leader among educators. His expertise, collaborative approach, teaching philosophy and desire to put students first make him an excellent fit for Belmont University and for the future students he will attract to our programs. We are delighted to welcome him to our campus, and we look forward to the many ways he and fellow Belmont College of Education faculty, alumni and students will continue to shape the teaching vocation in Tennessee and beyond.”
McIntyre said, “I am deeply honored to be named the Dean of the College of Education, and delighted to be joining the extraordinary Belmont University community. I have been inspired by the University’s mission to empower young people to engage and transform the world, and look forward to embracing that compelling ambition in the important work being done within the College of Education. As we continue to grow and develop the next generation of outstanding educators and instructional leaders, we will aspire to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and virtues they will need to create a brighter future for their schoolchildren, and indeed to transform the world.”
