Summary: John Felling presents workshops that are engaging, informative, fun and hands-on. In his workshops, teachers learn a variety of games and activities (new ones every year), closely tied to national, state and provincial curriculum standards. The games and activities presented integrate easily with the learning resources teachers are already using or can easily obtain. John brings a wealth of knowledge, insight, tips and humor to his presentations gained through his decades of experience as an educator and educational leader. He also finds time to teach in classrooms a few days each month, staying current with the challenges facing students, teachers and administrators. He has been a featured speaker at many recent national conferences (NCTM, ASCD) focusing on practical solutions to issues in today’s classroom. Mr. Felling is a co-owner of Box Cars And One-Eyed Jacks, mainly focusing on providing teacher workshops and training new Box Cars consultants. He is lead-author and co-author on several of the books in the Box Cars And One-Eyed Jacks series and has also authored the book Daily Physical Education – “No Sweat” For Classroom Teachers.

He will present virtual workshops on July 20 from 9 am-12 pm and September 9 12 pm-3 pm.
