Welcome! 

Hello Hurricanes!  Welcome to my web page!  Thank you for visiting it.  In my classes I strive to help my students learn to be the best they can be by pushing them while at the same time encouraging them to be their best.  My mission is to create life-long learners with the goal of becoming independent with their health and fitness.  We cover a wide-range of topics and activities within our time together.  Everything from nutrition, self-defense, team building, to some of the traditional sports and activities.  When we are participating in our sports I tend to use a teaching method called Sport Ed in which the kids get to have control of some of what is happening.  When we start doing some of those sport next semester please be sure to ask what we are doing.  I know they will love it!  

For my 8th Grade Fitness Training class we will be learning different ways to work out with and without equipment.  My ultimate goal for my students in this class is for them to be able to create their own personal fitness program that they will then perform for a specified length of time. This class will work very hard and in the end each of my students will learn the strength within themselves to be the best they can be.  

About Me

I am entering my 25th year of teaching physical education in the Gilbert District.  I started my career at Gilbert Junior High then moved to Highland High School then moved to Highland Junior High where I have been for 15 years.  

I received my teaching degree from Washburn University in Topeka, KS and my master's degree from University of Phoenix.  

I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Arizona Health and Physical Education as the Best Practices Chair Person. www.azhpe.org I am very active in the world of health and physical education and frequently collaborate with health and physical educators from not only across the country but also across the world.  I have had some amazing opportunities in the realm of health and physical education. For the past two years I have attend National Speak Out Day for Physical Education in Washington, DC where physical educators from across the country converge on Capitol Hill to speak to their state representatives on the importance of funding and supporting physical education.  I was also selected to attend Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teachers and Teaching which is a Bill and Melinda Gates foundation event for professional development for teachers across the country.  I continue to engage and evolve in my profession so I can be the best teacher for my students.

I am our school's Fuel Up to Play 60 Adviser and am always looking for more involvement from parent's and the community.  We were fortunate to receive a grant from FUTP60 this year in which we will be splitting the amount to help our students make better breakfast choices and the other portion to purchase a very cool new wrist heart rate and activity tracker.  Look for more information on that to come.
