Biographical Information

Jeff McAdoo is a physical education teacher at Lincoln Elementary School in Ottawa. Previously, he taught physical education at Quail Run Elementary School in Lawrence. McAdoo trains students and staff alike in the concept of "overload," which involves pushing oneself to achieve more than seems possible. In line with this philosophy, he developed "Mr. McAdoo's Castle," a modified obstacle course that allows students to work at, above or below their ability levels. McAdoo worked with local business partners to design and build a climbing wall for the students of Quail Run Elementary. The success of this innovative apparatus led most schools in the district to install climbing walls in their gymnasiums. Mr. McAdoo regularly presents his programs to student teachers at the local university.
