Toro's, welcome to Tarwater and my Physical Education class. I am excited to be back for another year and also, to meet all the new faces.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Mount Marty College (Go Lancers) in Yankton, South Dakota with a B.A. in Exercise Wellness, where I also played baseball. After my undergrad, I obtained my Masters in Secondary Education from the University of South Dakota. I have been at Tarwater since the Fall of 2019.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe in creating an active and engaging class where students not only learn to develop skills and play team games, but also have the opportunity to learn about how they can take physical fitness and health with them throughout the rest of their lives. I also believe in students developing relationships with classmates, teachers, and staff while having a positive, family-like culture. I want my students to be leaders inside the classroom, but more importantly, outside the classroom.
