Mr. John Goodale


I'm John Goodale and I am beginning my 31st year teaching in District Five and am just as excited about teaching PE as I was when I entered my first year in 1986. I graduated of Chapin High School and then went on to get my degree in Physical Education from Newberry College and my Masters from University of South Carolina. I am married (wife-Betsy) and have one daughter (Margo).

My goal is to provide a healthy and fun environment where all of our students learn the importance of developing and sustaining a healthy lifestyle. I will offer many activities within our SC State PE Standards and NASPE, to allow students to develop understanding and skills to perform at healthy levels of sport and exercise. By doing this each individual student will experience areas, skills and sports that they are very comfortable with and some areas that they realize that it may take some more time and work to improve.

Regardless, it is my goal that students find something that they LOVE doing and continue that passion as they move on to middle and high school levels, as well with hopes to that they continue these healthy habits into adulthood to stay fit and healthy.

I look forward to teaching and working with all of our students and families. If there are any questions or in need of assistance please feel free to contact me. Irmo Elementary School is a great school because of our leadership, staff, parents and most importantly our students. 

Bee Happy & Bee Fit!

John Goodale
