Mr. David Boone joined the staff at New Way in 2010. After spending time in the Army, he earned his undergraduate degree at Northern Arizona University, with a dual focus on History and Physical Education. After working in the restaurant industry for more than a decade, including three years in management, Mr. Boone returned to school to focus on his Master’s degree. Mr. Boone’s energy and dedication to the high school program is remarkable. His primary academic focus is in leading the High School social studies program. He also leads the yearbook team and is working on developing a photography program for New Way Academy. When he is not teaching, Mr. Boone can be found around campus taking photos at musicals, concerts, sporting events, and Spirit Assemblies. He is a certified NFHS soccer and football coach, and his peers voted him as “CAA Coach of the Year” for his efforts with the New Way Soccer program. In addition to his love for history, Mr. Boone enjoys art projects, talent shows, and telling corny jokes.
Mr. Boone hails from the great state of Alaska (Chugiak) and is used to spending as much time as possible outdoors; he enjoys hiking, camping, and kayaking. Mr. Boone is also the president of a local alumni chapter of Kappa Alpha Order and he works as a mentor to the undergraduate chapter in Flagstaff. His time spent in the Pacific Northwest has endeared him to Seattle Sports teams. After decades of being a fan, he was awarded with a Seahawks Superbowl win, and though he is optimistic, the only thing he can cling to is that the Mariners are the only MLB team that has not lost a World Series game (only due to the fact that they have never made it). He is still sad about the Supersonics.
