Meet the Faculty

Department Head: John Edwards

My name is John Edwards, and I teach Health and Physical Education at Sequoyah High School. I graduated with a B.B.A from the University of Georgia, then several years later decided to teach. I began teaching at Sequoyah in 2002 while working on my Masters Degree in Education at North Georgia College (now University of North Georgia). I began teaching in the special education field and switched to Health and PE in 2010, when I returned to Sequoyah after a five year stint at Creekview. I am also the Head Varsity Volleyball Coach, winning a State Championship in 2014. My family includes my wife, Sarah, and my two kids, Audrey Cate and Maggie. Having the opportunity to be a part of so many young adults’ journeys in the classroom and on the teams I coach is something I cherish and look forward to every year.
