Bio:

John Herring serves as the Department Chair for Physical Education and Exercise Science (PXS) and as the Program Coordinator for Physical Education and Health Education. He also oversees the Wellness Program. His primary areas of teaching are physical education, adapted physical education, health education, education, exercise and sport science and wellness. John has been teaching since 1983 at both public and private schools and colleges/universities.

He joined the PXS Department (then Wellness and Exercise Science) at Methodist University in 2006 and led the development of a revised Physical Education major (now Physical Education and Health Education) and a revised Strength and Conditioning major (now Exercise and Sport Science). He also contributed to the revision of the Applied Exercise Science major (now Kinesiology and in the School of Health Sciences). A thorough program evaluation of the Wellness program led to numerous changes, made to better meet the needs of all of the students at Methodist University. Most recently University approval was achieved for a concentration in Physical Education within the Master’s of Education program. North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) is still needed for final approval of the concentration. 

His research interests include positive behavior management, teacher behavior change, physical education for children with disabilities, design and evaluation of achievement-based curricula in physical education, assessment-based instruction, and motivation in physical education. John enjoys reading, volleyball, writing, coaching youth sports and spending time with his family.
