Mrs. Bretsch

Health and Physical Education

Welcome all Laurel Mountain students and families! We are all so excited to be here and ready for another enriching school year. As I begin my ninth year here at LME, I'm excited to see familiar smiling faces as well as many new ones, and here about your summer adventures soon.

This summer I spent much time with my family, a little travel, and a lot of relaxing. I hope you did too. My oldest daughter, Morgan, was home from college at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, and she's returning for her senior year. My youngest daughter, Ashlyn, will be leaving right before you return to school to head to Lubbock to attend Texas Tech also. Both girls are glad to have each other to share their college experience together for one year.

My husband John and I will continue enjoying time together with our three dogs, exercising, and continuing to follow Westwood sports and Texas college football teams. We've always been Texas Longhorn fans, but we're learning how to hold up our "Wreck 'em Tech" signs for the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Exercising has always been part of my life whether through team sports or exercise. As a Jazzercise franchise owner for many years in Cedar Park, I found sharing group exercise with my adult students fulfilling. However, I've experienced an even greater satisfaction working with LME students in Physical Education.

My goal as a Physical Education teacher is to help children develop a love and respect for their bodies through exercise and educating them about healthy lifestyle choices. I strive to live by example, teach with energy and enthusiasm, and creating a safe enriching environment for all.

Please feel free to contact me via email or phone if you have any questions or concerns about your child. You can reach me at 512-464-4316 or
