Welcome to the 2017-2018 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.
