Welcome to Quarter 3!
All Grades: Your health letters are to be read, signed and returned by Monday 1/28/19. Please go to your grades page if you need to access the letter.
In health class, we focus on different components of wellness, not just physical health. In 6th grade, students learn about 3 components using the Health Triangle. When they move up to 7th and 8th grade, they learn about 7 total components.
A little bit about me...
I am so excited to start my second year at Cawley Middle School! I went to Plymouth State University to earn my degree in Health and Physical Education as well as to play Lacrosse. I am currently earning my Graduate Degree at Southern New Hampshire University in Public Health.
I really enjoy traveling and have been to Ireland, England, Germany, and Greece! This year I have explored Maryland and Canada and will be visiting Wyoming in February! I also enjoy swimming, riding horses, hiking, going for runs with my dog and reading, this summer I was even able to try surfing for the first time! Health has been a passion of mine every since I was in Middle School and had my first Health Education class. I find it so important to incorporate all the components of wellness into my everyday life and look forward to sharing that with you!!
I know we are going to have a great year!
"Wellness is not a 'medical fix' but a way of living - a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for well-being now and forever." ~Greg Anderson
