Welcome to Gilbert Elementary Physical Education where students are introduced to a wide-range of fitness and sport-related activities.  I am confident your child will LOVE P.E. at our school as it offers so much in terms of quality instruction in a fun way where the kids are continually engaged in activity.  We get a lot done in a 40 minute class period!  We do a 2-3 minute warm-up activity to begin class, and then move to fitness where students exercise and learn how to maintain their fitness outside of class and school in ways they enjoy.  We then move on to our lesson focus and always finish with a game.  I am looking forward to meeting you and working with your child!

This is my 24th year teaching Physical Education right here at Gilbert Elementary.  I have had the privilege of working with many awesome educators over the years and three excellent principals.  This has been and continues to be a great school.  I still love to teach these kids and can't imagine doing anything else professionally but working with them for years to come. I enjoy continually finding new ways to enrich my class and provide the best experience possible.  I am an ASU graduate and began teaching immediately after college. I also have a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from NAU.  Teaching P.E. is my dream job and I am truly blessed to get to do it.
