Subjects Taught


I earned my bachelor of science in physical education degree from Chicago State University, and my master of science in physical education degree from Western Kentucky University. I am also a Certified Pool Operator.


My first teaching job was in Highland, IN in 1993 as an elementary PE teacher for Johnston and Merkely elementary schools. I then took a teaching and swimming coach position with Griffith Middle/High School in 1994. I remained in Griffith until 2001 when I took over here at Wheeler teaching elementary and middle school PE. I am currently teaching physical education at Wheeler High School.


Jumpin’ Jack Flash It’s Mr. Gass!!! Welcome to my web page. I teach a variety of subjects at Wheeler High School including freshman girls physical education, health, advanced girls physical education, and lifeguard training. I am also the aquatics director, pool operator, and head coach of the boys varsity swimming team. I live in the Morgan Township part of Valparaiso with my wife Jodi and our two kids, Grace and Robbie.

I am an exercise fanatic that enjoys swimming, biking, rollerblading, and hockey. I’ve completed several triathlons including IRONMAN Louisville in 2007, and I participate in the Tour de Farms Multiple Sclerosis bike ride in Dekalb, IL every June. I also love to go camping with family and friends as often as possible.
