Current Units I am Teaching:
This year has been challenging for everyone, but the Physical Education department has found a way to keep our students active and engaged each time they are in class. I have been able to teach a wide variety of units, which have been challenging and enjoyable for all of my students. This Spring I have had the pleasure of teaching Volleyball, Tennis, Pickleball, Team Handball, Ultimate Frisbee, Bocce, Corn Hole, Spikeball, and Gaga. The activities this Spring incorporate a variety of hand-eye activities, cardiovascular endurance, teamwork, leadership, healthy competition, lifetime fitness and communication. Getting my students outside and moving is extremely important and hearing them enjoy what they are participating in is so wonderful to see!
