Degrees and Certifications:


My name is Leo Gerace and I will be your son or daughter's physical education teacher this year. Let me begin, however, by briefly describing my professional background.

My Master’s is in Education from NSU and a BS from Penn State.  I am certified to teach Physical Education, Health, PKP and ESOL K-12. I have working for MCPS as a teacher since 2000.


My goal is to help children find a variety of ways to enjoy being physically active so that they will be able to get all of the physical, emotional, intellectual and social benefits that come to someone who is physically active. 


As a teacher I recognize that children are at different developmental levels, with a variety of needs and interests. For this reason in every class I attempt to provide all of the children with Teaming experiences that are both beneficial and enjoyable. Each lesson is adjusted to take into account the wide range of skill and fitness levels that distinguish children in elementary school.


I am very proud of the physical education program at Belleview Elementary School and looking forward to being your child's physical education teacher this year.
