About Me

cc2
My name is Jim Levdansky.  I have two beautiful children with my lovely wife, Susan.  My son, Preston, is twelve years old and my daughter, Savannah, is ten.  One of my passions has always been running/weightlifting!  Exercise has always played an important role in my life and will continue to do so.  Due to my love of running/weightlifting, I had the pleasure of a long and fulfilling coaching career at South Park High School in track and field (22 years) and cross country (21 years).  Although I cherished those coaching memories, I recently retired from both sports in order to be more active in my own children's lives. 



Philosophy

I am a firm believer in a classroom that is organized and disciplined.  I believe that without these two components, learning is close to impossible.  This is why I begin each year discussing my high expectations with my eighth grade students.  I believe that this plan provides prevention of negative behavior, respect for one another, and consistency to be successful.
