Mr. John Mohr
|Hi, my name is John Mohr. I have been formally teaching in Nebraska since the Fall of 1997, and have been at Diller-Odell since the Fall of 2000. I became a teacher because I had great role-models who were educators when I was growing-up in Ponca, Ne. I continue to teach because I really enjoy interacting with young people and being a positive role-model. Being able to share life’s experiences with students is rewarding.
Currently, I teach a variety of Social Studies/History classes, along with a Strength Training class. Additionally, I am the head coach for Girls High School Basketball (entering my 16th consecutive year), assistant coach for High School Football (been doing this for 6 total years) and co-coach Junior High Girls Basketball. I help co-sponsor the ENGAGE activity group here at Diller-Odell, which is an organization that promotes leadership qualities in our students.
Previously at Diller-Odell I was head Track & Field coach (7 years), assistant High School Boys Basketball coach (5 years) and co-head coach of Junior High Football (5 years). I also was the sponsor for the Class of 2006.
I have been married to my wife Tricia since 1994. We have two children. Peyton, currently is in his 3rd year of college at Doane University in Crete, Ne. Paxton, is currently a Senior here at Diller-Odell. Over the years, attending or participating in our boys’ activities has occupied much of our family’s time!
Other activities I enjoy doing is traveling to different places to attend sporting events or visit historical landmarks. I also collect sports memorabilia, and I like to fish & golf when I get the chance. A favorite quote of mine is by Ralph Waldo Emerson --- “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
