Welcome! This is my second year at J.T. Barber Elementary and I am excited to continue building a solid physical education program for our students. I will be entering my 15th year of teaching. I have taught both at the elementary and high school level.
I have the best job and love what I do! The goal of physical education is to develop physically educated individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity. As your child's P.E. teacher, I will provide as many opportunities to explore movement, increase body strength, improve cardiovascular endurance, learn game strategies and most importantly be a team player.
I hope your child will leave my class feeling energized and stronger. I want to give every child at J.T Barber a sense of accomplishment and success. Lessons will be provided to engage every ability level from skills to fitness and interests.
