Hello, my name is Mike Sykes and I have been a teacher in the Great Egg Harbor Regional High School District for the last 14 years. I Started my career at Absegami and was a Health and Wellness teacher there for 4 years. I then moved to Oakcrest and taught for 5 years and I am recently at Cedar Creek High School and begining my 15th year as a Health and Wellness teacher in the District.  I have coached Football, Wrestling and Track over the last 15 years.  I am now teaching our newer class offered the past few years called Goal Specific Fitness.  I am very excited and looking forward to teaching this class and helping students reach their goals and full potential in their specific area of interest. I am a graduate of Holy Spirit High School and hold a bachelors degree from The College of New Jersey.
