Mr. Nicholas Woodard

Welcome to Mr. Woodard’s Physical Education class webpage! This is my 9th year here at La Cima Middle School, where I am a physical education teacher, and Athletic Director.  I am originally from Belvidere, Illinois.  Go Blackhawks! Go Cubs! Da Bears!

Defining Moment in Education

The moment I knew I wanted to work in education, was working in the afterschool program for the YMCA. This time in my life I got the chance to work with children in a school setting.  I enjoy helping the youth find their place in life and give them useful information to have a successful life.  Seeing some of my students struggle has shown me the importance of education and I knew that this is where I needed to be.

Core Educational Belief

Education is the future. My goal as a teacher is to prepare my students physically and mentally for their futures.  The world today needs the next generations to be motivated and hardworking.  Without the proper education these future leaders of the world will struggle with life’s hardest decisions.  It is my job as an educator to help my students better themselves and push them to reach their goals!

Prior Experience
