Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Clayton "CJ" Denio

I have been teaching for 16 years (all at Saluda Trail!). I represented the Wildcats as Teacher of the Year for the 2015-2016 school year and the Rock Hill School District as Teacher of the Year for the 2016-2017 school year. While at Saluda Trail, I have taught 6th grade Math classes for 8 years and this is my 8th year teaching Robotics and Engineering. I have also coached Football and Wrestling here at Saluda Trail and I have coached our MathCounts and Robotics teams. 


I love giving children opportunities to learn new things. I strive to give everyone a chance to see themself do something they thought was impossible because, it is never true in my classroom.
