Hello my name is Yoki Ford. I have been teaching Health and Physical Education for 14 years. I taught six years in DC Public Schools and eight years in Arlington County Public Schools. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Physical education as well as a Master of Science degree in Educational Administration and Leadership. I enjoy arriving at Drew Model School to see each student smiling face. I decided to become a Health And Physical Education teacher because I love sports and I was an athlete in elementary and middle schools. My belief is for each learner to strive to do their “BEST’. Physical Education gives students an opportunity to be active and teach them the importance of health as well as build skills that enhance active learners. During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my son and daughter, reading, dancing, bowling and studying different types of music.
Hello! My name is Kenyon Spann, but the kids call me Mr. K, and I am one of the PE teachers here at Drew Model. Athletics and physical activity has always played an important role in my life from my younger days and even today. Through sports and physical education, I have not only learned the importance of a healthy active lifestyle, but I have also learned about the value of character and attitude. I decided to become a teacher because it was a way for me to give back and leave a lasting, positive impression on the next generation of students. I’ve been with the Arlington County since 2008. Before coming to Drew, I taught fours years in Loudoun County, and one year in Fairfax County. I’m also a football coach at George Mason University. I’ve been there for 4 years, and I love it. I’ve also received my bachelors degree in physical education at George Manson University. Most recently I just completed my masters degree in Sports Psychology. So when I’m not teaching, outside of school I enjoy working out, playing sports and coaching, reading, going to the movies, and hanging with family and friends.
