Mr. John Denner

My name is John Denner. I live in Diller with my wife, Cheryl and our three children Hayley, Mallory and Peyton. When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching sports and playing golf.

I began my teaching career at Diller where I taught 6th grade and coached High School Girls basketball and volleyball. Upon leaving Diller, I taught at North Central Elementary in Haddam, Kansas. At that time, I taught 6th through 8th grade Math and Social Studies. I also taught 8th grade Spelling and was 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/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 and fortunate to be at Diller-Odell Schools. I enjoy working with the administration, staff, students, parents and patrons. I am truly honored to be at Diller-Odell Schools. Go Griffins!
