Degrees and Certifications:
I earned my B.S. degree from USF in 1994. I began my teaching career the fall of that same year. My entire career has been spent teaching and coaching in the Marion County Public School system. It has been quite the experience. Over the years i have taught at every level with in the school system. I must say middle school is the time that students change the most.
I have a beautiful wife and two wonderful daughters that take up most of my free time. If I am not with them you can find me in the woods hunting with my bow. I enjoy most activities that get me or my family outside. Mountain Biking and Kayaking have become two of my favorite pastimes.
There are some things that have changed for this school year due to, well it's 2020 and it has been one heck of a year.
1. We no longer have access to the lockerroom. That means we are asking that our students come to school prepared to be active. Wear comfortable athletic clothes and have on the proper footwear. At minimum students should have on footwear that allows them to be active safely. Closed toe shoes athletic shoes are a must. Some other things that could possibly be brought to school on the days that your child has physical education are a towel, deodorant, and body spray.
2. We no longer are allowed to let students to drink directly from the water fountains. We ask that your child comes to school with a reusable, refillable, identifiable water bottle. We will have multiple water breaks through out the class to allow the students to refill the water bottles. It is very important for your child to stay hydrated. Not only will it help them in our class but it will help their performance in all of their classes.
Things that are still the same!
We are going to provide a safe, social, active enviroment for your child in our physical education class. If we can accomplish these three little things each and every day we are going to have a great school year.
