Mr. Travis Emrich
My name is Coach Emrich and I will be your child’s Physical Education teacher this school year. This is the start of my 8th year here at Harbour View and my 18th year as a teacher. I moved out of the classroom and onto the PE Field two years ago. We have seen a lot of new and exciting PE activities over the past two years. These include the donation of 25 bicycles to our school for out 3rd-5th grade students to learn to ride and ride safely. I have also added 30 sets of Cardio Drumming equipment since joining the department. I am looking forward to adding many new activities this year!
I am a graduate of The Ohio State University with both a Bachelors and a Masters Degree in Elementary Education. I taught in Ohio for 4 years before moving to the warmth and sun of Florida.
I was recognized in 2016 and again in 2017 as being a High Impact Teacher by the State of Florida. I bring my high expectations from the classroom to the PE department. Students will be challenged to try new things and to push themselves beyond what they think is possible.
Please make sure to send your child to school each day dressed for the weather and wearing closed toe tennis shoes. If proper footwear is not being worn, your child will not be able to participate in the activities and their grade may fall as a result. If you have any questions, please call me at the school or email me. I will return all communications within 24 hours. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year!
UPDATE: Welcome to a new way of learning. We are going to be doing distance learning for the time being. Each week, assignments will be given to a specific pair of grade levels. If your child is in my PE class, they are required to complete 2 of the 3 assignments listed in the assignment section. To receive credit for completing those activities, send me an email with a photo of your child completing two of the tasks. Please include their name and their homeroom teachers name.
