I would like to welcome everyone to the 2017-2018 school year. This is my 29th year teaching Physical Education in private and public schools in St. Tammany Parish. I am starting my 10th year at Madisonville Elementary. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Tulane Univeraity.
Promoting healthy lifestyles to my students is the main goal of my physical education program. Louisiana, like many other states, has a high rate of obesity, and I believe promoting health conscious decisions can pay dividends in students' futures. First and foremost, at Madisonville Elementary we provide students with oppontunities to attain the skills and knowledge to be physically active. Students will become competent in basic movement forms, motor skills, and social skills. The students will also learn to enjoy physical activity without comprising safety.
I am looking forward to teaching your children this year.
