Montclair Teacher Competes On Next American Ninja Warrior


Could Montclair teacher Jason Kaplan, who teaches physical education at Hillside Elementary in Montclair, be the next American Ninja Warrior?

Kaplan, who has shown his amazing gymnastic talents to students at Hillside School’s gymnastic shows for years, will get a much bigger audience when he competes on American Ninja Warrior’s season 11, #ANWBaltimore, scheduled to air this Monday, July 1.

Kaplan definitely has his Hillside’s colleagues rooting for him. Kaplan shared a picture on social media with everyone wearing JKAP t-shirts.

“Do I make TV time, do I hit the buzzer, or do I get wet? Stay tuned and find out,” says Kaplan.
