Hello Cardinal Family! I have been a teacher at La Cima for 5 years and I teach Homeroom, 6-8 PE and Walking Fitness. I also coach cross country and track and host Mileage Club before school.
By participating in La Cima fitness classes you will not only improve your athletic abilities, but also build relationships with classmates, refine work ethic, and represent our school when you are out in the community. Middle school is a time for exploration and self-discovery, so we will participate in a variety of new activities. I strive to create a classroom environment where every student feels safe to take risks, fail, and try again without judgment. Students in my classes can expect to learn the importance of teamwork, fair play, and sportsmanship and practice these skills on a daily basis.
Although physical health is a large focus of PE, it is important that we understand all components of well-being are interconnected. At La Cima, we will simultaneously tend to physical, emotional, social, and academic wellness and pursue a balance for a healthy life.
