Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. I am looking forward to providing an engaging physical education program for your child. This is my seventh year of teaching and I'm starting my 4th year at Central Union Elementary School District. This is my first year with Stratford as a P.E instructor. I've coached a variety of sports and love to see kids enjoying physical activity while learning to achieve their goals individually or as a team. I attended West Hills Junior College for two years and received my B.A. at Bethany University. I received my teaching credential from Cal-State Teach. I'm excited that we have the opportunity to have this program and I'm thrilled again to be able to teach your child.

Physical Education Class Description
P.E. classes meet twice weekly.
P.E. classes provide a safe environment where all students, no matter their athletic ability, feel free to participate without embarrassment. Good sportsmanship, safety, and positive attitude are stressed on a daily bases. The goal is for all students to be successful and to have fun.
