My Students

I love teaching PE to my students! They are always happy to be active with their classmates, and they all have so much energy! They love learning new games and activities, and mastering new skills.

I am always looking for new ways to support their physical development, and to get them moving!

As the kids develop physically and tackle new challenges, you can see their confidence and their smiles grow!

My Project

It is wonderful to be back in school with my students this year. I love watching them run, play, sweat and laugh as they participate in PE each week. I teach all grades at GVES, and I am always looking for new resources that work well for everyone.

Bocce is such a great game for my classes as it can be played - and won - by children of all ages and athletic abilities, and keeps them all active as they play!

It can be played individually, or in teams of up to 4, which means that by having multiple sets, I will be able to keep the whole class playing the whole time. The bocce sets I have requested are perfect for kids, and perfect for school every day. They can be played inside and on pavement, as well anywhere outdoors. Bocce is also a game that children can play outside of school, and I am eager to teach them the skills and rules they need to do that.

I have also requested 3 basketballs to help keep our PE supplies complete.
