Hello! My name is John Larson, and I am in my second year here at Cyd Lash and in my first year as one of our Physical Education teachers here at Cyd Lash Academy. I grew up in Mount Prospect, Illinois and graduated from North Park University where I was a student athlete playing baseball. I plan on furthering my education by getting my Masters in Motivational Speaking and Leadership Studies throughout the next few years.
The mission of the Cyd Lash Academy Physical Education Department is to educate minds, develop healthy bodies, and promote positive attitudes towards lifetime physical activity, fitness, and sports skills. With a quality physical education program in place, each student will be empowered with the knowledge and skills necessary to make responsible lifestyle choices that directly impact his/her health and well-being.
I am committed to delivering and following a dynamic and powerful education program that supports the development and enhancement of education and personal growth of all students. I produce a collaborative and respectful environment, which encourages all students to participate at their highest ability. It is our goal to instill confidence, desire, enthusiasm, imagination, leadership, and strength in all of my students. I work everyday to ingrain a positive outlook on life and a dedication to hard work in all of my students - not just now, but for a lifetime..
I look forward to getting to know all of you throughout this school year. Please feel free to reach out and contact me if needed.
