Physical Education at Jenny Lind

I am very excited to join the staff at Jenny Lind. I feel like I am coming home. I am a proud graduate of the Minneapolis Public Schools. I attended Loring, Lincoln, Olson and Henry High School. I also graduated from Anoka-Ramsey Community College in 1985 and Mankato State University in 1988 and 1996. I enjoy fishing and boating, running/walking, and being outside as much as possible.

Students at Jenny Lind can look forward to many opportunities of growth through movement as we explore and learn about large muscle movement and fine muscle movement. We will work on safe body control as we participate in activities with and without equipment.  Physical education offers safe opportunities for students to try new activities, practice those skills and build on their success.

 

Parents can help in the success of their student by having him or her ready on gym days with activity shoes.  Students wearing open heeled or open toed shoes will only be able to observe the activity of their class.  Flip flops, sandals, boots, and high heels are just too dangerous for a student to have a successful experience in the gym. During the winter months, please pack activity shoes on the assigned days for gym.

Hopefully, we can utilize our fabulous outdoor park for activities in the fall and spring.

Parents, please contact me by email for any questions or concerns.
