Our Principal

Greetings Clinton Middle School students and parents. It is my pleasure to serve you as principal this year! This is my sixth year in Clinton and my second aschapman your educational leader. Prior to becoming principal at CMS, I had many educational experiences including 16 years of classroom teaching in middle school math, ELA, social studies, and third grade. I have also had seven years experience as an elementary administrator. With all these amazing experiences, I will always be a teacher at heart.

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Middle School Math from Missouri State University, a Master’s in Education from Pittsburg State University, and an Educational Specialist in K-12 Administration from William Woods University.

My husband and I are blessed with three daughters, Lauren, Reagan, and Savannah, and two grandchildren, Tripp and Miller Faye. When we are not working we are spending all of our time with family. I live by the educational philosophy, “If it is not good enough for my children and grandchildren, it is not good enough for anyone’s child!” Just as with my children, I want to see my students excel and become productive members of society who have ample opportunity to become whatever they want to be when they grow up.

It is my privilege to lead Clinton Middle School and the many talented teachers and students here. My goal is to continue to provide a supportive climate and culture at CMS where we lead with grace and accountability so we are able to provide the highest levels of teaching and learning to all students. I look forward to partnering with you in your student’s education. When questions arise, please feel free to reach out to me at j[email protected] or call the office (660-885-3353).

Yours in teaching,

Mrs. Jill Chapman
Principal, Clinton Middle School
