Welcome to Willow P.E.

      Hi everyone! Welcome to Willow School Physical Education...a place where students are moving and grooving! This is my 26th year teaching at Willow and I truly enjoy what I do. I believe enthusiasm and a positive attitude help motivate students to try their best and benefit from the variety of activities that are taught. Our program incorporates exercise and fun, along with cooperation and teamwork, in a safe environment. Fundamental skills such as throwing, catching, kicking, dribbling, locomotor movements, etc. are taught and then implemented into games and fitness activities. Ask your child what their favorite activity is and you’ll probably see their face light up when they describe Fainting Goat Tag, Messy Backyard, Bean Bag Slide or Survivor! I'm also a co-coordinator of our Mindfulness program. If you would like to know about our Mindfulness program, please feel free to contact me. 

      We encourage our students to be active outside of school as well. Please check out the websites below to find creative games and activities for your child. I also provided websites for Health Education and Mindfulness.
