My name is Cody Ward and I am the Health/PE teacher here at Spalding. I have taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade totally 11 years of teaching. This is my first full year teaching Health/PE and I am absoutely thrilled! I taught 3rd grade at Spalding before this position, so it is so fun getting to have previous students as well as meet new ones in Health class.

Throughout the year, you will also see me active in intermural basketball, intermural football, and the garden club . I look forward to another exciting year of teaching!
