Westside Physical Education
Welcome to P.E.! My name is Gina Arnold. I have spent most of my career in the Lowndes County School System. I studied Physical Education at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville Ga. I also have a Master's and a Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Troy State University and Nova Southeastern University. My goal is that all students gain a desire to be lifelong participants in physical activity. Through P.E., I try to instill a sense of self-worth and accomplishment for each student. Many life lessons can be learned in P.E. Students learn to get along, take turns, try new things, and understand the concept of teamwork.
I am married to John Arnold. He is a Math teacher and Coach at Lowndes County High School. We have two beautiful daughters, Kirbi and Kerri Ann.
All classes come to P.E. at least 2 times a week. Friday's schedule rotates. Please click on the link below to see your child's Exploratory rotation! (coming soon)
