Groveland Park Physical Education

  • Welcome to Physical Education!!

    My name is Jennifer Dobson and I have been teaching Physical Education at Groveland Park Elementary since 2017.   I have been teaching in the St. Paul School District since 1994.  I graduated from Northwestern College in St. Paul and earned my master's at St. Catherine's.  

    Being physically active is a passion of mine and I am excited to share that passion with the students here at Groveland.  I love keeping up on the latest and greatest in Physical Education and Fitness.   I want Groveland students to understand why daily physical activity is important and then teach them skills and activities they can use and do to live a healthy lifestyle.  

    When not teaching, I love to spend time with my family and friends and take my dog on walks. I enjoy working out, reading and golfing.  I love to travel to warm places in the winter and the mountains in the summer.  

    I enthusiastically get to know each of my students and what inspires them. 

    Feel free to email or call me if you have any questions about what is happening in Physical Education.
