I am currently in my 25th year of teaching. Having taught Physical Education in all grades preschool-12, I am currently in a primary center, grades K-4. My experiences have included positions in parochial affluent schools, and Title 1 schools. Through professional development I have become well versed in integrating PE skills with academic content. My students love it, and it challenges me! I believe it is a wonderful way in which to differentiate instruction.
I believe in presenting lessons to my students which will develop physical skills, as well as support the learning going on in their classrooms. I find it to be the easiest way to engage young children and get them excited about learning!
I have been three times nominated for Teacher of the Year in my school.
B.S. in Education, Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, 1884 M.S. in Secondary Education, Indiana University at South Bend, IN 2005
I reside in Granger, IN, and have done all my teaching in Indiana. To remain current with new ideas and best practices, I am a member of SHAPE (formerly AAHPERD).
