Mr. Chase Hearn
My name is Mr. Hearn. I was born and raised right here in Ocala and was a graduate of Belleview High School. I have two children that are in high school and are part of the Marion County Public School System. Therefore, I understand what it means to send kids off to school with the prayers of them being treated kindly and fairly. That they will be motivated to go above and beyond their current state to excel towards new, higher success. That they will be kept safe and held accountable. My promise to myself, my students, their parents/guardians/family, and my colleagues is that I will provide that environment in my classes and here at FMS.
While I was in school I was involved in numerous sports and several extracurricular activities. I was fortunate enough to be able to continue playing sports in college. I played for and attended the United States Air Force Academy (Go Falcons!) and the University of South Florida. I have also studied at and furthered my education at the University of Central Florida, as well as the University of Florida. I'm grateful for all that athletics, my coaches, and my teachers provided me as went on my journey through school. Those experiences gave me the desire to coach many sports as well and I use that kind of motivating mentality while I teach and build relationships with my students. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, being in the outdoors camping, fishing, and hunting. I hope that I can begin to travel more often, but I just need to hit the Lotto first (Hey, it supports education.) I also still have the drive to continue my education and I am working on that.
Let's have a fantastic year and GO COUGARS!
