I am a graduate of Northern Illinois University. I was born and raised just outside of Chicago, Illinois. This will be my second year as the Physical Education teacher at Raul Martinez Elementary School!
In my P.E. classes, I strive to teach the students the importance of maintaining a physically active lifestyle. It is critical that kids know why we want to be healthy and fit. I teach a wide variety of activities in order to help every student find something, or many things that they love to do.
Physical Education is also a fantastic time for the participants to develop an array of important life skills, such as communication, teamwork, leadership, personal-and-social responsibility, as well as honesty. These are skills that the students use on a daily basis to become amazing contributing members of society!
