Physical Education - Mr. Jones

Hello My Name Is...

John Jones

I’m John Jones, the Physical Education teacher at Beaufort Elementary School. I have a B.S. in Physical Education from Coastal Carolina University and a Master of Arts in Teaching in Physical Education from the University of South Carolina. I taught physical education at Marshall Elementary School in Orangeburg, SC for 1 year. I was the physical education teacher at Gilbert Primary School in Gilbert, SC for 4 years. This is my 2nd year at Beaufort Elementary School.

I am married to my wife Meghan and God has blessed us with 2 beautiful boys.  Their names are Johnny and Wyatt.  We have a dog, a lab/beagle mix, and her name is Ellie Mae.  My parent’s names are John and Liz and my sister’s name is Katie.

A little motto that I have lived my life by comes from a very old saying, “Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day.  Teach a man to fish, he will eat for a life time.”  I love being able to ‘teach’ my students how to be successful at physical activities/fitness.  I know that if they learn to enjoy being active now, they will hopefully want to be physically active for a lifetime.  Which ultimately is my hope for all my students.
