About Me

Growing up I didn't have a positive experience in physical education. Later I became a physical educator with the hopes of creating a positive physical education experience for all students. 

Throughout my 20+ year teaching career I have been blessed with many experiences in physical education, instructional coaching and teacher leadership, serving on several school leadership teams and working with dozens of new physical education teachers as a university supervisor, cooperating teacher and new teacher mentor.

I co-authored the book Adventure Racing Activities for Fun and Fitness and have presented at several district and state physical education conferences all around the country. I currently teach physical literacy and wellness at a high school in Sacramento, California and am also a part time lecturer at the university level. 

Hopefully this website helps you find resources to create a positive physical education experience for all of your students.

You can also find me on Twitter @thepechallenge where I send a simple weekly challenge for physical educators to encourage quality physical education and promote a positive image of our profession
