I have been teaching physical education in St. Paul since 1998 and have been at Dayton's Bluff since 2010. When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy being outdoors and watching my son play sports.
Physical education supports the physical, emotional-social, and intellectual development of students. My goal is to inspire students to pursue a lifetime of fitness related activities and healthy decisions making.
Students grades 1-5 have Physical education everyday for two weeks and then rotate to science for two weeks. In Kindergarten the students have physical education everyday for two weeks and then rotate to science and music for 2 weeks before returning to gym.
Please make sure your student brings shoes that are appropriate for the gym, sandals and boots are not allowed for safety reasons.

Minneasota has not adpoted specifice standards for Physical Education, so SPPS has adopted the standards from the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.
