Ms. Shelly Bloom-Leftwich

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year

Unless you are new to Meridian Middle School I have had all the 7th graders in class last year and welcome them back now as 8th graders.  For the incoming 7th graders I am excited to meet and get to know you this year.   

I will be starting my 31st year of teaching, 20 of which have been spent in Physcial Education.  My love for kids, fitness and sports are the reason I went into teaching to begin with and I am still, after all these years, excited each fall to begin another year.    

NOT everyone is an athlete, but EVERYONE can be FIT.  This is my long held belief as a physical educator. 

I also believe that fitness, through physical education, can change your life in a positive way.  In my years as a physcial educator I have seen many students gain confidence by conquering fitness challenges they thought were out of reach for them. Like most things in life fitness takes perserverance and determination....sometimes called GRIT.  I will challenge your student (s) to conquer fitness challenges this year through perseverance and determination and I am hoping that you will support me in this endeavor.  Students will not only gain confidence but a new level of health and fitness.  The gift of being physically fit coupled with the knowledge of how to attain that fitness can have a great impact on their entire life. 

I hope together we can help your sons/daughters gain fitness, confidence and good health.
