Mr. Doug Tingle

Hey friends! My name is Coach Tingle. I have been teaching school at Jackson Elementary for 19 years. This is my second year as the PE Coach. Previously, I was a special education teacher here at Jackson Elementary.

Before becoming a teacher, I graduated from Methodist University where I played tennis for the Monarchs. Upon graduation, I began a career as a tennis teaching professional in Macon, Georgia. The tennis courts is where my love for teaching began. I enjoy the challenge of finding new ways to teach children that have many different learning styles. 

I am married to my beautiful wife Rachel who is a nurse in the Operating Room at Wellstar Hospital in Griffin. Together, we have a 15 year old son, Drew.

I love all sports. Currently, I am the head coach for the tennis team and the assistant coach for cross country team at Jackson High School.
