The purpose of Physical Education is to gain (learn) the skills, knowledge, and disposition to be physically active for a lifetime.

I love my job and the opportunity it gives children to learn important skills that help them enjoy being physically active! I have worked in the Lewis-Palmer School District since 1996. I started out as a part-time kindergarten teacher for three years. Then, I moved into third grade where I taught for seven years. In 2006 I shifted from classroom teacher to Physical Education. My experience in these positions and as a mother have added valuable insights into the connections I can make with my students.
