Mr. Jonathan Bannister

This is my 6th year at Plano East. I am the boys head track and field coach as well as the assistant coach for both boys and girls cross country. My first four years I was the JV girls' soccer coach as well as the assistant for the Varsity girls' soccer team, girls' track & field team, and both boys and girls cross country team. In the late morning and afternoon you can find me at the one and only Mendenhall Elementary where I teach fitness to my awesome Kinder, 1st, & 2nd graders. Prior to joing the Plano East Family, I built my own personal training business with a contract through the City of Plano starting in 2007. I graduated with my bachelor and master degrees from Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville. During my time there I was part of the track & field team earing 4 All-American titles, 2 conference athlete of the year awards, and numerous conference titles.
