Mr. Darmody - Woodview Elementary School


ABOUT ME: My name is Kyle Darmody and I am the physical education teacher at Woodview Elementary School. I am a proud 2008 graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Platteville where I received my Bachelors Degree in physical education with a minor in health education and coaching. I started out teaching health and physical education at Grafton High School during the 2008-2009 school year, then transitioned to elementary physical education at Woodview in the 2009-2010 school year. I have been at Woodview ever since, and I absolutely love my job! When I am not at school I'm usually coaching a couple of different sports, or enjoying the rare time off at home in Grafton with my wife Ashley, my sons Chase & Jack, and my dog Cali!

ABOUT MY JOB: My belief is that my job is to help individuals better themselves. Obviously, being the physical education teacher this includes, but is not limited to: teaching ball skills, motor skills, physical fitness skills, and a variety of fun games that makes students want to choose an active lifestyle. However, that's not all I teach. In my classroom we take the time to learn about the different parts of our body, why they are there, and what it really means to be "healthy". Finally, I take great pride in my responsibility of teaching our students appropriate life/social skills, why it's important to have a great work ethic, and how to appropriately respond to adversity. I teach these skills through the games we play, but I’m sure to make the point of relating it back to their everyday lives. I believe in the importance of these skills so much that I am actually the tier one coach of Woodview's PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Supports) team where we put in place plans/procedures to positively reinforce desired student behaviors throughout our school & community.

THANK YOU: Finally, I just want to thank all of you: parents, PTG, Woodview classroom teachers, Grafton administration, and Mr. McMahon. You have all been extremely generous, supportive, and instrumental in helping my classroom instill lifelong healthy habits in our students. I thank you for your support over my years of teaching at Woodview, and for the years to come!
