Mr. Shantz

Hello!  My name is Jason Shantz.  I have been in the teaching profession for 25 years!  I taught 7-12 Social Studies for three years at Fisher, Minnesota and Physical Education and Health at the Blake School in Minneapolis, Minnesota for 20 years. In January of 2020, I started teaching 7/8 grade Health, 6-8 Lifelong Fitness and 8th grade AVID at Farnsworth Aerospace Upper School and will be teaching those courses again for the 2020-21 school year.

            Courses:         7/8 Grade Health

                                    6-8 Grade Lifelong Fitness

                                    8 Grade AVID

In my spare time, I try to enjoy the outdoors whether it’s fishing, hiking, biking, boating or going for a walk with friends and family. I am engaged and have one 14-year-old son who is a freshman this year.  I enjoy watching him play soccer for his club and school teams.

Farnsworth is a wonderful place to build community between teachers, administrators, students and parents.  As Principal Bell always says, “It’s about, Relationships, Relationships Relationships.”  Let’s preserve and make it a great year!
