Hello My Name Is...
Welcome back to a new school year! This is going to be another exciting year filled with fitness and fun! I have several new activities I can't wait for our students to try. This is my 16th year teaching Physical Education at Blumfield. I also help run the Intramural program. We plan on doing to five events this year, and hope that a few of those will spark some interest in our fourth, fifth and sixth grade students.
Health and fitness has never been as important as it is today. With the alarming rise in obesity rates, lack of physical activity, and poor nutrition habits, for the first time ever, young people have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. We need 60 minutes of physical activity every day to meet the minimum requirements. PE class is a great start, but you need to do more. Get the whole family involved!
