About Me

My name is John Weingart and this is my 4th year teaching Physical Education at Mentor Public Schools. I grew up in Streetsboro, Ohio and attended Kent State University where I earned my degree in Physical Education and Health. Mentor Schools was very lucky to receive the PEP Grant in 2014, where we received all new equipment as well as the SPARK Physical Education curriculum. This curriculum has been fantastic and my students all seem to love it. In grades K-2, we focus on essential skills such as locomotor skills and moving around the gym safely. Once students reach 3rd grade, we work with the Sport Education model, where instruction is carried out in a way which simulates an athletic team season. My goal is that every student will be an active mover and will value movement after their time at Sterling Morton and Brentmoor!
