Tom McCaffrey

I help students in Speech and Debate develop skills in research, organization, analysis, critical thinking, collaboration, and presentation. I am a community helper, a servant leader, and still a work in progress. I have served as co-chair of Jasper's Fine Arts Department, and on the National Speech and Debate Association North Texas Longhorns District committee, both from 2017-2019.

I have worked in radio with ABC/Disney, in television with ViacomCBS' MTV and Nickelodeon, and have served on the boards of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in both Texas and Florida. 

My wife is a professional photographer and we have three grown sons, three little dogs, a medium size cat, and a big parrot.
