Hi there! My name is Jordan Werner. I am the Physical Educator at Riverside. I grew up in Grants Pass and graduated from GPHS in 2007. I obtained a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science, a Health Education minor, and a Masters of Arts in Teaching all from Western Oregon University. While I was at Western I also competed on the Track and Field team as a hurdler. I am so grateful to get to teach the students at Riverside about physical literacy and the importance of living an active and healthy lifestyle! Recently I was lucky enough to receive recognition as an Oregon Physical Education Teacher of the Year by The Society of Health and Physical Educators.
In my time away from Riverside you can find me camping, snowboarding, paddling the lake, running on the trails, on the soccer pitch, or running on the roads. I am also the head football coach at South Middle School, and the hurdles and high jump coach at GPHS!
We are GP!
