Welcome to 8th-grade Physical Education. Go Cougars!
This is my eighth year teaching in the Florida education system. I am from Rochester, New York, and I am very excited to be a part of your community and look forward to getting to know you and your students.
Our physical education department is very excited and looking forward to working with our students this year. You can expect from us to be transparent, consistent, open-minded, and willing to assist our students in any way possible to help them succeed. We, in turn, will expect our students to be respectful, prepared for class and demonstrate good judgement and sportsmanship. Active participation in P.E. is a requirement and each student will earn daily points based on their involvement and adherence to classroom rules and school policies. Scores and comments will be posted twice a week on your student's FOCUS account for your review at home.
I promise to treat your students the way I would want someone to treat my children. I have been in the field of education for 20 years and could not imagine a greater profession. I enjoy teaching and hope that your students will be able to recognize the dedication our Physical Education Department has to their education.
Please be sure to check our website and Canvas for updates for lessons and general information. Any quizzes, extra credit, tests and/or additional resources will be found on your student's CANVAS pages (accessible from school and from from). As mentioned, student grades are posted twice a week in their FOCUS accounts and are available to you at all times, as well as my class notes. This allows you to be kept up to date as to your student's progress in physical education. Participation is the basic foundation for earning a passing grade in P.E., so we encourage you to discuss this requirement with your students.
