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 in my 18th year as head coach for Girls High School Basketball. I also coach both Junior High Football and 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 Football Coach (7 total years), and assistant High School Boys Basketball coach (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, a graduate of Doane University and currently living and working in Lincoln, NE. Paxton, who is in his 2nd year of college at the Univesity of Nebraska-Lincoln. 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.”
