Facts to Know About this Curriculum:

• It's not a canned curriculum - this was NOT designed by a company of people who've never taught P.E.; rather, it was designed by me, a P.E. and Health teacher and P.E. Department Head with years of experience teaching all grade levels of P.E.

Hear me talking about the program in this short video!

• Through countless hours of P.E. grant work, aligning curriculum to standards, and designing lessons to meet those standards, I’ve accumulated invaluable experience.

• These units been "teacher and kid tested." I've taught them, revised them, taught lessons again, perfected them, and improved them. WHY RE-INVENT THE WHEEL?

• Need to change a lesson? No problem! Documents and PowerPoints are editable and docs are included in both Word and PDF formats.

• Best of all, students love this program. Students who like what they’re doing in P.E. are more likely to choose to be active for life! (read the reviews below)


Here's what buyers have to say about my #1 Best-Selling Curriculum:

“Love it!! Made my planning easy!”

“Awesome curriculum!”

“Wow! I LOVE this seller's products…Purchased her P.E. curriculum and I LOVE it. It is amazingly organized with great ideas. It has made my life as a teacher so much easier. I am lucky I found such a great product. This takes years of experience and a lot of time.”

"…so easy to set up and follow”

"My goal is to become better organized and more effective in my teaching and purchasing this curriculum is just the first step.




9-Weeks of online workouts for students to do at home! The goal of this P.E. “at home” program is to help students try a huge variety of activities, and to give students a CHOICE of which workouts they'd rather do! 

The program is based on the idea that if students have choices, they will enjoy working out more, and they will hopefully choose to be active for life!
