My career started in high school as a track and field and cross country coach. For the last 11 years, I have been an Elementary Physical Education teacher and fitness coach. Over the summer I have created a camp called Game Time Summer Camp that has over 150 kids. I take a lot of pride in my lesson plans, organization and into creating valuable resources and memorable experiences for all my students.
I employ many different teaching styles depending upon the grade level and class. I prefer to lead by example and I understand how influential I can be on my students. As a Physical Education teacher, I teach what I preach and the actions I take in my everyday life towards overall health and fitness is clearly evident.
