Mr. John Witt
I am beginning my 25th year of teaching at the elementary level. The 2020-2021 school year will be my seventeenth here at Coker, and will be my thirteenth year as a PE teacher (I began my first four years at Coker as a 4th grade classroom teacher). In 2015, I was honored to be nominated and to win the Coker Teacher of the Year award. What a humbling accomplishment!
I earned my Bachelor's Degree from UT Austin, and my Master's Degree from Houston Baptist University. I am a member of the Texas Association for Physical Education, Health, Recreation and Dance. I serve on the campus Health and Wellness Committee and sponsor for our campus Student Safety Patrols.
My wife, Deborah, is a first grade teacher here at Coker. We have a twenty five year old son who is a recent graduate of Texas Tech University and works in the field of personal financial planning, and a daughter that is beginning her senior year at the University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'Em!
I am excited to be a leader of physical wellness and nutrition, and to work to improve these aspects for students on our campus. With my qualifications and leadership skills, the students will love coming to PE and working hard to achieve personal physical fitness goals!
I love teaching the students at Coker...it's a wonderful community!
If you ever need anything, please feel free to contact me during my conference time listed on the schedule above, or write me an email. I would be happy to be of service to you.
