Mr. John Denner

My name is John Denner and I am the Title I Teacher at Diller-Odell Elementary. I am also the high school girls basketball assistant coach and the junior high boys basketball coach. I live in Diller with my wife, Cheryl. We have three children Hayley, Mallory and Peyton. When not teaching or coaching, I enjoy spending time with my family.

I began my teaching career at Diller where I taught 6th grade for five years and coached high school girls basketball and volleyball. Upon leaving Diller, I taught at North Central Elementary in Haddam, Kansas. While there, I taught 6th through 8th grade Math and Social Studies. I was also the 6th through 8th grade P.E. teacher, athletic director, 8th grade class sponsor and coach of junior high football, boys and girls basketball and track.

After leaving North Central, I taught at Southern Elementary for fifteen years. While at Southern, I taught 2nd grade for eleven years. For the last four years I was there, I was the Title I Teacher/Reading Coach. I also coached junior high and high school sports while at Southern. The sports I coached were high school volleyball as head coach, high school golf as assistant coach, junior high football and junior high boys basketball as assistant coach.

I am very happy to be at Diller-Odell Schools. I enjoy working with the students, staff, administration, parents and patrons. I am honored to be at Diller-Odell Schools. Go Griffins!
