Hello My Name Is...

Jacob Banks

Mr. Banks


Welcome to My PE Classroom


Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.  This will be my eleventh year teaching at Kannapolis City Schools. (wow i feel old saying that)  I love my job as everyday brings me a different set of students to work with.  My goal is to introduce students to the importance and joy of exercise.   I am an avid sports fan, Go Panthers, Brewers, and Bucks.  Sports have helped shape who I am as a person, so I look forward to being able to share that same passion with the students at KIS.  


Outside of school I love being able to spend time with my family.  My wife and I have a son and three four legged babies.  They keep us active with evening trips to the park, walks or just messing around in the backyard.  


Feel free to contact me by email or by school phone at (704) 932-4161.
