Kindergarten teacher Darrell White is taking over as vice-principal at American Heritage Academy's Camp Verde campus.

White and his wife moved to Cottonwood four years ago so that he could take the assistant principal job at AHA. He moved to Camp Verde a year later to take over the kindergarten class.

Two years after finishing his master's degree in 1996, White earned an endorsement in administration.

"My greatest love is in the classroom teaching kids," he said. "But yes, I also enjoy being on the administrative side, looking into the things that are available for teachers like workshops, professional development (and) school improvement plans."

White said he wants to "strengthen and enhance the philosophy of American Heritage Academy."

A group of home-school parents started AHA as a nonprofit public charter school, according to the school's website. 

"Preparing kids to become leaders," White said, the curriculum puts an emphasis on "traditional basics" and the founding members of society.

"The foundation of the school in and of itself is something I want to be a part of,"

Now owned by Edkey, Inc., AHA received an A rating from the Arizona Department of Education. He wants to make sure their ADE rating stays consistent next year.

"If we can maintain that A next year, it tells me we're on the right track," he said.

White earned an associates degree in Ephraim, Utah, his hometown. Snow College is also where he met his wife of 35 years.

He earned his undergraduate degree at Southern Utah University, and his master's in education from Utah State University.

"I have six kids, nine grand kids, and my biggest joy and love is being with my children and my grandchildren," he said.

Yep, indoctrination comes to mind. It is a thing of beauty comrades. Don't think, just mindlessly accept that Amerikka is number ONE.

In incarceration.
In infant mortality.
In prescription drug deaths.
In military spending.

And the list goes on.....

Dear American Heritage Academy,

I have witnessed the routine opening ceremony at the Camp Verde American Heritage once and I would recommend it to anyone as a experience that you will never forget.

For me, it was like stepping back in time and meeting a old friend.

What did I experience? Well you will just have to go and find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
