My name is Jordan Beard, and I teach physical education at Battleground Elementary. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Athletic training in 2012. Since then, I have obtained my teaching license in Health education, and physcial education. I spent 2012-2016 at Lincolnton High School as the head athletic trainer. I was also at Hickory Ridge Middle School as a health teacher and athletic trainer from 2016-2019. My wife, Jessica and I are both from Lincoln County where we currently reside. I am looking forward to a great year here at BGES!
