Why do I teach Physical Education?-
Sports and physical activity have had a strong impact on my life. This passion for a healthy lifestyle is something I want to instill 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 Indian Hill
