Clint Firth is the Academic Director at Discovery Ranch for Girls. Clint’s circuitous route to the teaching profession began when he graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in International Politics. After spending eight years in the technology industry, most of which was spent as CEO of IntekUSA, Inc, he was convinced by his wife to follow his heart and turn his passion for databases, business math, and kids into a teaching profession. Since that decision, Clint has worked six years as a full-time math teacher — three as a public school teacher and three in the private residential community. He now has a clear math teaching credential in the State of California, as well as being a certified Teacher of English Learners. Clint also has a passion for music and guitars, and he has taught private guitar lessons for several years. Clint and his wife Alison are the happy parents of six beautiful children, all of whom are intelligent, spirited, gifted, and extremely challenging to parent. Hobbies include guitar music, basketball, backpacking, gardening, and anything else he can do with his family.
