Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Josh Edwards
I have been teaching both health and eighth grade physical education at Plank Junior High School since it opened in 2006. Along with teaching physical education at Plank, I am also the Head boys coach at Plank and the Head JV, Assistant Varsity wrestling coach at Downers Grove South High School. Prior to teaching at Plank, I taught at Thompson Junior High for one year.
I attended Western Illinois University, Macomb, where I received my bachelor's degree in kinesiology and my master’s in educational administration and supervision from Governor`s State University, Chicago. I really enjoy instilling an active lifestyle in the students I teach, and I strive to provide my students with a fun, educational classroom. I am married and have a step daugter and son.
