Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Ed Ball

I am Mr. Ball and I teach English IV and Creative Writing here at D.C.H.S. As indicated on my photo, I am indeed a graduate from D.C.H.S. (Class of 1995). I am married to Amber, a fellow graduate from D.C.H.S. Class of 1996. Together we have three wonderful children, one at E.T.S.U., one here at D.C.H.S., and one at Jonesborough Middle School. I enjoy reading, writing, actively participating in church activities, and exercise (especially running). 

I am here in my twelfth year teaching overall, eleventh at D.C.H.S.  I enjoy teaching high school students and watching them grow and deepen their learning as they travel the journey of their time with me. 

If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to email me at balle@wcde.org (preferred). You may also call the school at (423) 753 -1150.
