My name is Ryan Andersen and I am in my fourth year here at John Paul II Academy as the physical education teacher and third year as the school’s athletic director. In addition to working at JPIIA I also serve as the physical education teacher at Our Lady of Grace Academy while working as an assistant football and baseball coach at Westosha Central High School. As a life-long athlete and physical education enthusiast it is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2017-2018 physical education program. I believe that quality physical education holds a very high place within a student’s overall education. By promoting life-long health and well-being it is my goal to help you grow personally, socially, and emotionally through sport and physical activity while promoting exceptional sportsmanship that align with the teachings of the Catholic faith. I look forward to sharing my passion and working with you to improve your overall well-being! I would be happy to answer any questions or address any concerns and can be reached via e-mail at randersen@johnpaulacademy.org
