About The Teacher
I've been teaching at W.J.H.S. since September of 1996. I have also coached the boys soccer team for my first 7 years as well as
softball (both JV and modified level) throughoutthe years. I coached Varsity Softball at RCK for the 2010, 2011 & 2012 season. Each
season was a success, either reaching sectional finals or semi-finals for the first time in many years. At this time, I am no longer coaching,
however, I have two teenage boys and enjoy watching them play all their sports. I am a Breast Cancer SURVIVOR, diagnosed in October of 2013,
and I am very passionate about our October Breast Cancer Awareness month each year. We have many activities throughout the month and many
opportunities to get involved!
Mission For The Class
WCSD curriculum for Physical Education at the middle school level is team-sport
oriented. Some examples of our team-sport units include, but are not limited to
football, soccer, volleyball, basketball. Instruction will focus on refining motor skills,
game strategy and cooperation among peers. Students who change clothing for class,
participate in activities, and demonstrate good sportsmanship and appropriate behavior,
will excel in Physical Education.
My goal is to provide the appropriate environment for each student to have as much
success as possible. Even though not all students excel athletically, there are always
additional opportunities to demonstrate their highest potential as a student in my class.
