A little about myself...
I am in my fifteenth year of teaching Physical Education and am proud to have been born and raised in Bayonne. After nine years at Washington School and four years at Bayonne High School, I went on to attend William Paterson University for my undergraduate degree in Physical Education. Upon completing my five years there I chose to pursue my Master's Degree in Athletic Administration at Gonzaga University located in Spokane, WA. I have since taught one year at a Jersey City high school, four years in the Bayonne elementary schools, and am currently in my eleventh year at Bayonne High School. In 2016 I obtained my NJ State Supervisor and Principal certificates after completion of the program at Kean University.
Athletics have always been a large part of my life, it's hard to remember a time of my life when I have not been involved in an organized sports league. A healthy diet and daily exercise are also two things that are very important to me. I believe that taking care of your own body in this way is something that every person owes to themself. These are just a few of the skills/knowledge that I want to pass on to my students. I feel that if healthy habits are started while the students are young they will continue to practice those habits throughout a lifetime.
Some of the things that I expect of my students in class...
I expect my students to always respect both themselves and each other.
I expect my students to recognize that every individual has varying skill levels in all activities that we perform and that it's perfectly alright to not be the best at everything.
I expect my students to participate to the best of their abilities during all activities.
I expect my students to put safety above all else when participating.
I expect my students to NOT bully and/or make fun of others.
I expect my students to have fun and enjoy themselves during my class periods.
