My name is Dottie Clayton and I am the fifth grade science teacher. I was a Lipscomb Academy parent for thirteen years before joining the faculty eight years ago. This community has blessed me and my family immensely. I cannot think of a better place to teach. My wonderful husband, Bruce, and I have been married for twenty-nine years and have three children who graduated from Lipscomb Academy as lifers. I love teaching science to fifth graders! We have many different topics we cover and lots of things to research, investigate and learn. In future years, your fifth grader will build upon the vocabulary and experiences that we have this year.
