Teacher Helps Students Find True Potential
July 9, 2012
In Dr. Darryl Claybon’s classroom, students conduct hands-on activities designed to help build confidence in their professional abilities and to discover their unique skills. “I want to help my students figure out their paths in life,” Dr. Claybon says. “The classroom activities are designed to help my students find their true potential.”
Dr. Claybon uses the real-world knowledge he has gained throughout his 26 years of professional experience to facilitate undergraduate and graduate courses in humanities, world religion, philosophy and business at the Douglasville Campus in Georgia.
Dr. Claybon’s ability to intellectually engage students in the classroom earned him the University’s Faculty Leadership Award. He accepted the annual award at Strayer University’s June 23 regional commencement ceremony at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.
Prior to joining Strayer University in 2007, Dr. Claybon was a financial services representative for SunTrust Bank in Atlanta, Ga., where he worked in the areas of mortgages, lines of credit, business and personal loans. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Jackson State University in Mississippi, a master’s degree in psychology of religion and a doctorate in ministry from the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta.
