MISSION STATEMENT:

Physical Education is based upon the acquisition of knowledge and skills that are the foundation for engaging in physical activity. However, the mere acquisition of knowledge and skills is not enough.  The mission of Physical Education is to empower all students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life.

Physical Education is a sequential educational program.  It is based on physical activities undertaken in an active, caring, supportive and nonthreatening atmosphere in which every student is challenged and successful.

 

  • I teach 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Physical Education along with being the Athletic Director for High School and Middle School.
