Welcome to Carlson Elementary Physical Education. It's going to be a great school year! I look forward to meeting all my students and our new families. My goal, as a physical education teacher, is to teach my students how to live a healthy and active lifestyle through physical activity. I want students to leave my class knowing that they did their best and feeling successful.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor's in Physical Education and received my Master's from the University of Phoenix. I started my teaching career in 2002 and have been in Chandler since 2008.
My Educational Philosophy
Physical education provides the opportunity to teach students about movement, strategies, teamwork, problem solving and health related fitness. Each of these areas is addressed in the National Association for Sport and Physical Education’s (NASPE) standards and is important to teaching the whole student. Exposing students to various physical activities, sports, and methods of fitness can better provide enjoyment of physical activity, as well as build social, psychomotor, and cognitive skills. I strive to safely provide the means for students to enjoy physical activity, become more confident with their abilities, increase their knowledge of health related fitness, and help them find ways to continue to be physically active.
