About Me

 

I was born and raised in Nottingham, England until I moved to the United States in 2003 to pursue a career in soccer training.  Throughout my early years in the United States I was given the opportunity to coach across the country, and truly appreciate many of the sights and experiences that the US has to offer. In 2009 I began to attend Mercer County Community College, where I obtained my AS in Exercise Science.  From there I transferred to Kean University, where I graduated from in 2013 with a BA in Physical Education and Health for grades K-12.  After graduation I taught Physical Education in both the Readington and Springfield school districts .

 

I am very excited to now be teaching in the Summit Public School district, and I look forward to my future here.  As a PE teacher, there is nothing more satisfying than watching your students develop their fundamental locomotor skills over time through persistent practice and specific instruction.  A great teacher can recognize and acknowledge the talents and challenges each individual student has, then help each student subsequently develop necessary skills and techniques. 

 

My goals at Washington Elementary School are:

- For all students to enjoy and have fun in PE class. 

- For all students to understand the importance of staying physically active.

- To show students the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship.

- To teach students the necessary concepts and fundamental skills needed to play each sport. 

- To help each student develop locomotor skills while building up endurance and strength.
