Mr. Conor Barry

I am a physical education teacher at The Wheatlands Elementary School in School District 308.

My love for fitness truly started while I served our country in the United States Marine Corps. After the Marine Corps, I graduated with honors from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, in Kinesiology. I furthered my education at Northern Illinois with a master’s degree in exercise physiology. Additionally, I am also a certified strength and conditioning specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. My teaching career started in Lyons, Ill., where I taught elementary physical education. I started teaching first through fifth grade at The Wheatlands during the 2005-2006 school year. I truly have a passion for fitness and working with students to encourage them to strive to pursue a life of physical activity and healthy eating.
