• Hello, my name is Doug Lincoln, the full‑time Physical Education teacher here at Hull Elementary, where I have held that position since the school opened in 2001. My work experiences also include teaching for nine years in the Tempe Elementary #3 School District as an Adaptive Physical Education teacher, where I worked with special-needs students.  I also have fifteen years of experience working for the ARC of Arizona, Mesa as a Life Skills Instructor.

    I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Upper Iowa University. I have also earned a Master's Degree from Northern Arizona University in Secondary Education with an emphasis in the areas of History and Government.


    Prior to moving to Arizona in 1988, I was an assistant football coach at Upper
    Iowa University, a Division II school located in Northeastern Iowa; I also coached for one year at West Central High School.

     

    I was born in Iowa and raised there most of my life.  My family also lived in Fort Myers, Florida for a few years, where I spent a lot of time on the beach. I have two brothers and one sister. In high school, I lettered in football, basketball, track and baseball. My greatest accomplishment in athletics was being selected 1st‑Team All‑State in Football as a running back.

     

    Socrates once stated that "One must have a sound body, before one can have a sound mind". As a Physical Education teacher, I hope to teach the students the importance of a healthy lifestyle through developmental sports and health education. I hope to instill in my students the importance of being physically active in a manner that will increase their physical competence, self‑esteem, and an enjoyment of many physical activities. The Physical Education curriculum will include a balance of individual skills, health concepts and game activities. These activities are designed to enhance the cognitive, motor, and physical fitness development of every student.

    As a Physical Educator, I want to take on the challenge of motivating my students to develop a healthy lifestyle and to demonstrate to them how much fun physical activity can be both individually or shared with their peers.


    It is my intention is to meet every individual student's needs, and this belief is very important to me. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns about the Physical Education program. I can be reached either by e‑mail or by phone at 883‑4515. I appreciate your support and we always welcome and appreciate parent volunteers.
