My name is John Woody, and I am a proud graduate of Sam Houston State University with a B.S. degree in Agriculture and a minor in Criminal Justice. I also hold a M.Ed. degree in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon University.

After serving many years as Texas peace officer, I began teaching Criminal Justice at Corsicana High School four years ago. I switched over to teach Agriculture Mechanics last year and joined Italy ISD in 2016.


My wife and I have three grown children. We live on a farm outside of Corsicana. One of my main hobbies is beekeeping.


I look forward to growing with the Italy ISD family as we carry on the legacy of the Italy ISD Ag Science Department.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at
