I also have two endorsements that are in drivers education and coaching.   I also hold a masters degree in the arts of education and a Rank I certificate for administration.   I am excited to be able to have the opportunity to have your child in class.  As a physical educator and health teacher, it is my goal to educate your child on ways of becoming more physically fit.  This can be accomplished by activities and also education in many areas from nutrition to communicable diseases and other topics that are health related.  I hope your child enjoys my classes and learns how to become a healthier person or learn a new activity or sport that they did not know before, and that they may learn and play as a life long activity or sport.  If you have an concerns or questions please feel free to call me at (606) 862-4745, e-mail , fax (606) 862-4746, or mail, all listed above.
