A Little About Me!

  • I hail from the hamlet of Buskirk.
  • I have taught PE for 15 years. (10 in Cambridge)
  • What I love about my class is that every student is evaluated on their own abilities and effort. Every person has the capacity for improvement and my class is just one way that can be realized!

I'm looking forward to an energetic and productive year!

  • Participation in the class warm-up - Students are expected to fully participate in the warm-up activity (stretching/jogging in place/focused breathing)

  • Participation in the class activity - Students are expected to fully participate in whatever class activity is assigned for the day.

  • Social Responsibility - Students are expected to display good sportsmanship and contribute to an overall positive learning environment in class.

***In the event of a school wide remote instruction (pause days, snow days, large scale quarantine) Students will be expected to participate in activities and submit work via google classroom.

  • Students will be required to log in to their Google classroom for PE on remote learning days to receive credit for attendance.

Physical Fitness - 20%

  • Students are expected to participate in the Presidential Physical Fitness Test. The test consists of measurements for flexibility, muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance, and agility.

  • Students are required to participate in the test 2 times per year, (Fall and Spring) but may schedule times throughout the year to test again and improve upon any and all categories.
