I can't believe I get to be in a gymnasium all day every day as my job! I have teaching PE since 2001 and have no plans on stopping anytime soon. Before Webber, I taught for 9 years at O'Dea Elementary School and 12 years at Lincoln IB Middle School. I have a wonderful wife named Karyn and I have two sons. Kanyon was born in 2007 and Dylan was born in 2008. I love being active and I get my exercise in a number of different ways. As an adult, I have played in ice hockey, soccer, and softball leagues here in Fort Collins. During the summer I spend my time kayaking on the Poudre River, backpacking, and spending as much time in the water as possible. In the winter, you can find my family on the slopes either skiing or snowboarding (although mostly skiing). Besides physical activity, I also enjoy doing crossword puzzles, reading, and watching TV. My favorite show at the moment is "Alone." Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback for me!
Differentiation and fun are the two key components of my classroom. My goal as a PE teacher is to make PE useful and enjoyable to all students. I try to customize the lessons as much as possible to give everybody the right balance of challenge vs. fun.
I have a B.S. in Health and Exercise Science from Colorado State University as well as a M.A. in ESL (English as a Second Language) from the University of Northern Colorado.
I love the energy the kids bring to the building every day. I enjoy creating a positive culture within my classroom and seeing the kids support each other. The smiles and high fives after a good class are hard to beat!
I will be teaching PE for all grade levels as well as Yoga and Connect.
