Mrs. Marianna Poling
Welcome to Centennial Physical Education! My name is Marianna Poling and I have been an educator in District 6 for 20 years now! I've taught PE at all grade levels, taught Health at Greeley West High School and even was the Dean of Students at Maplewood Elementary School. The cool thing is, my first teaching position in our district was at Centennial way back in 2004. Now I'm back and couldn't be happier to be an Eagle again!
In our Physical Education classes, we focus on our 4 state standars- Movment Competence, Physical and Personal Wellness, Social Emotional Wellenss, and Prevention and Risk Management which will guide how we learn throughout the year. We, of course, will focus on having fun, too! We will learn many different sports and activites throughout the year- things like soccer and basketball to fitness "classes" and yoga! We have a funfilled year in store packed full of lots and lots of great activites. I am so excited to be part of such an awesome school! Go EAGLES!
A little about me-I have been married to my husband Matt for 10 years. He is a chef and I LOVE eating, so it was a match made in heaven. We have two daughters who are 8 and 5 and keep us very busy. I absolutely love being in the mountains. I love hiking, camping, exploring and hot spring(ing). If I'm not home on the weekends, I'm up at our property in Fairplay, CO! I also have a passion for photography, painting and decorating. I have a small side business as a photographer. If I'm not photographing our beautiful state, you can bet that I am painting or decorating our house in one way or another. My motto is you only have one life, so we need to live it to the fullest.
