. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I received a Bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University in Physical Education with a minor in Health Studies while also playing four years of college baseball for the Panthers. I also received a Master’s degree in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University Irvine. I enjoy being active and have a passion for coaching and sports. I am excited about the growth of our High School Athletic Program and am looking forward to a successful 2016/2017 school year! Go Eagles!
Physical Education will focus on improving all 5 components of physical fitness; muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility and body composition through a variety of activities. Athletic/Motor skill development will be incorporated into class as well as character and social development. Fitness and athletic skills will compliment each other and students will be pushed to work hard and improve everyday in class. Character will be stressed and students will be required to treat others with respect and develop their social skills by working in teams and groups on a daily basis.

Points can be earned in class on a daily basis. 5 points can be earned everyday, 3 for participation and 2 for character/dress. Participation points can be earned by giving 100% effort everyday and for each specific activity. Character points can be earned by getting dressed for class and displaying good behavior, attitude and respect.
60% - Daily Character/Participation Points
40% - Skills Assessments (1 Skills Assessment per Unit) and Unit Assessments (Tests/Projects/Journals)
Students must wear proper P.E. attire everyday to class. New West P.E. shorts and P.E. t-shirts are required. Sweatpants and sweatshirts are ok on days we are outside, New West attire only. Proper athletic shoes must be worn at all times. Clothes, shoes and materials can be kept in lockers. It may be a good idea to store an extra pair of shoes or clothes in lockers as well.
Rules/expectations will be discussed in further detail in class.
*Steps to success: Give your best effort, be respectful, have a good attitude and come prepared to learn and work hard everyday.

I expect my students to strive to become the best they can be by giving their best in everything they do.
"Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming" (John Wooden).
