Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. David Graf
My name is David Graf and I am one of the two physical education teachers here at Pleviak. I have been teaching physical education to elementary aged students since 2014. Prior to coming to Pleviak I worked at Kildeer School District 96 in Buffalo Grove, Illinois as an Adapted Physical Education teacher. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical and Health education, while attending Northern Illinois University. I also have my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a teacher leadership endorsement. In my time away from school I enjoy spending time and trraveling with my family.
Sports and physical activity have had a strong impact on my life. This passion for a healthy lifestyle is something I want to instill this within my students. All students can learn and succeed when given the correct tools. My hope is for my students to discover and understand the importance of teamwork, the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, and to introduce them to a wide range of activities
I am looking forward to another great year here at Pleviak.
