Welcome! to Physical Education at Highland Junior High.  In this class students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of fitness and sports activities.  The goal is to significantly improve fitness levels throughout the year using both aerobic and anaerobic exercises.  In addition, students will participate in a variety of fitness tests.  We will provide students with the understanding of how to stay fit when they exit this class.

About Me:

After graduating from Dobson High School, in Mesa, AZ, I went on to receive my B.S. in Physical Education from Northern Arizona University.  Following that, I earned my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from NAU as well.

I have been teaching junior high & high school physical education in GPS for 21 years now. Currently I am teaching both 7th and 8th Grade Boys P.E. this year, in addition to Unified P.E. classes and Sports Training. This year, I am excited to be coaching Wrestling for my 21 year as well.

I have been married to my beautiful wife, Jenni, for 19 years. We have three children ranging in age from 10-18. In my spare time, I enjoy camping, hiking, exercising, and reading the timeless literature written by my muse, William Shakespeare.
