My Students

I am so fortunate because I get to teach all 630 kids at our school! It's exciting to know how much young students enjoy PE. I want to make sure they experience all of the benefits of a healthy, active, fun physical education class.

Our school fully supports the inclusion classroom, which means I tailor my lessons to meet the needs of all students.

Experiencing team sports with children for the first time is the most rewarding part of my job. We learn skills that will last a lifetime!

My Project

My elementary kids would benefit from learning the fundamentals of team sports. I would love to teach the skills associated with football, catching and throwing.

Football is a great sport to teach the fundamentals of throwing, catching, running and scorekeeping.

Students will be able to choose teams by assigning captains. Boys and girls will both be able to participate and learn the rules of the game.

The ball and bucket game will be very interactive and fun for all grades. I will be able to form teams of 6 allowing students to work with each and cheer one another on.
