I have been a physical education specialist for over 29 years, teaching both Health and PE at all levels throughout my career. My concentration is in elementary PE, however I have been creating health, PE, movement and game based products for several years now. I am Nationally Board Certified and have served as a NBPTS Supervising Trainer and Assessor and as a Scorer for the EdTPA. In 2009, I was selected as Georgia State Elementary Physical Education Teacher of the Year. I have also served as a college collaborative teacher and have worked, in the past, an adjunct college Fitness for Living professor. I have coached multiple sports at all age levels for lacrosse, soccer, basketball, football and track.
I strive each day to maintain a physical education program of excellence focused on developing and improving students’ personal fitness, and motor skills, utilizing developmentally appropriate activities through purposeful, creative and enjoyable instruction.
