Welcome to My Physical Education Classroom
I am originally from New York and have been in this area for 15 years. This is my 14th year teaching elementary physical education at Fred L Wilson. I enjoy playing basketball, golfing, and working out. I coach lacrosse at A. L. Brown and like to watch NFL, college basketball, and Major League Baseball on television.

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
B.S. in Physical Education from the State Universtiy of New York at Brockport

I am looking forward to working with students to improve their physical fitness, teach new sport skills/strategies and engage students in challenging games and activities. In addition, I want to encourage proper nutrition and a healthy body image for all students. I am committed to helping every student achieve success and above all else making physical education fun for all.
Physical Education plays a vital role in society by helping students gain an appreciation for wellness, fitness, and participation in life-long physical activity. My curriculum includes traditional games, individual and team sports, and physical fitness principles as well as allowing children crucial time needed to socialize appropriately and build cooperation/competition skills needed for not only future sports participation, but life in general.
For many children elementary physical education is the foundation from which they build a life full of healthy, active choices. I want each child to see that a healthy lifestyle can be achievable, rewarding, and fun.
Basketball and Bowling
Please have child(ren) wear tennis shoes and appropriate clothing on their PE day.
Allow students the opportunity for physical activity at home each day...and join them! Play, play, play!
