Mr. Peace

Mr. Peace, Advisor

Mr. Peace is in his eighth year of teaching, though he can't quite believe it's been that long, and in his fifth year of teaching Journalism. Having spent the past three years of his life traversing the grad school gauntlet and finally graduating last May with a Master's degree in English Literature, Mr. Peace is excited to be able to devote all of his focus and energy to teaching again. He hopes to revitalize The General Journal this year by recruiting a wide variety of students, revamping news coverage, and redesigning the General Journal website. Assisted this year by yearbook co-editors Paige Johnson and Cade Stone, as well as a tight-knit Journalism staff, Mr. Peace also plans to create the most aesthetically striking edition of Heritage's yearbook, The Legacy, so far. In addition to teaching Journalism, Mr. Peace also teaches English, primarily the 12th Honors English class, as well as some college-prep English classes for 12th graders. He hopes to create better readers, writers, and thinkers, but above all he hopes to create a welcoming and uplifting community in his classroom, one devoted to exploring fundamental questions about life and guided by writers throughout history who have staked out the same territory. Outside of work, Mr. Peace can often be found reading at a coffee shop, listening to music on a run through Gilbert-Stephenson Park, mowing his yard, playing with his cat, Mitski, or sitting on his front porch--with a book in one hand and a Polar seltzer in the other, of course. Pre-COVID, Mr. Peace attended several concerts a month, whether they were hosted in the fanciest venues of Atlanta or Nashville or in the basement of Sluggo's or just at some person's house. He is eager for the return of live music, especially after watching several great shows this summer from his friends in Chattanooga's own Dolphin Group. Mr. Peace's favorite musical artists at the moment are Big Thief, Low, George Harrison, Frank Ocean, and Laura Stevenson. All in all, Mr. Peace is excited about the 21-22 school year, despite what obstacles it may bring, and aims for this to be his best year as a teacher yet.
