The Blazer Spotlight - Mr. Bo Shappell
Name: Bo Shappell
Position: Physical Education Teacher
Years at Daniel Boone/Total Years in Education: 11
The best part of my job is: students finding joy in exercise and moving the body. I love seeing kids find something that they really enjoy whether it be a team sport or individual activity.
When I am not at school, you will probably find me: Reading a book, listening to a podcast, walking my two dogs, or doing something physical like weight lifting, running, or yoga.
What profession, other than your own, would you want to do if you could?
Why? I would say personal training. I did that part time years ago and really enjoyed it. Much like my students finding joy in exercise and moving their body, I enjoy helping others find that spark within themselves as well.
Three things you might be surprised to know about me are:
I went skydiving once. It wasn't as scary as it sounds.
I wrote a book, All In: The Mindset of Fitness. It was an amazing process during the journey.
I created a patent pending product for youth. Although the patent wasn't successful, it was a humbling experience from start to finish.
