Hello Chappelow families! 


This is my 19th year teaching Physical Education! This is my 13th year being a Chappelow Cheetah! I love teaching students how to be healthy and active! I have a Colorado State Standards based PE program and adhere to best practices recommended by our National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE).


In elementary PE class, we do a variety of skills from Fit ball Drumming, throwing and catching, fitness actvities, teambuilding games, traverse wall, batting, you name it we do it! In middle school PE, I use a program called Sport Education which is where students are on teams for the whole semester and learn different roles such as coach, scorekeeper, referee, and player. The teams do everything from setting up equipment, to settling score disputes, to teaching their team different sports, games, or fitness skills. It is a great responsiblitity for the middle school kids to learn from. Please feel free to stop by the gym anytime to see what we are all about! I am also a lover of dogs, hot pink and purple, anything glittery or sparkly, and making jewelry.
