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 Physical 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 live. I am looking forward to having a great 2022-2023 school year here at Battleground Elementary!
