What to Expect

As a Meadow Brook Physical Education instructor, I am greatly concerned with the student’s well-being in my class. I feel it is the teacher's responsibility and duty to provide a safe learning environment for all children. Therefore, in establishing the policy and participation guidelines for my classes, I have set rules with your child's utmost health and safety in mind.

IT IS YOUR CHILD’S RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW AND ABIDE BY THE FOLLOWING RULES:

SHOES – Students must wear closed toe shoes in order to participate in that day’s activity. They do not have to wear these to school, but must have them to change into during their PE class.

GUM, CANDY, ETC. – Absolutely no gum, candy, etc.

TARDINESS – Students are expected to be in the gym on time. They are expected to have proper shoes on and ready to participate when class begins.

ILLNESS – If your child is sick or injured and cannot participate in physical education, they must have a note from you to excuse them from participating in that day’s physical activity. The note must be dated and addressed to the P.E. instructor explaining why the student cannot participate. After three days of non-participation, the parent must make verbal contact with either the instructor or the school nurse to discuss the situation, and/or make arrangements to accommodate the student while they are sick or injured. A doctor’s note is also accepted.

GRADING SYSTEM- The PE Department bases its grading system on a combination of daily participation points, teacher observation, written quizzes, peer and self assessment. Points are awarded daily for cooperating, participating in the day’s activity, and various skill assessments.

EXPECTATIONS:

PLAY HARD: Participate with effort in all activities. Demonstrate a commitment to the process, lesson, or activity. Demonstrate proper movement skills and concepts.

PLAY FAIR: Adhere to the expectations and instructions of the lesson/activity. Display honesty during the lesson/activity. Allow equal opportunity for others to participate.

PLAY SAFE: Look out for the safety of others and avoid careless risks. Show an awareness of your body and those around you.

SHOW RESPECT: Listen respectfully to both teachers and students. Cooperate with the teacher and classmates (Display good sportsmanship). Show the value of other's equipment, property, and environment.

ARCHERY

Feel free to browse around and take a look at what MBI's archery program is like.

Our 2-week unit began on 10/19 and will continue through 10/30. Students are learning basic fundamentals of archery, such as range safety/guidelines, parts of the bow and arrow, eye dominance, and how to shoot a bow.

About Me

teacher of the year pictureHello Meadow Brook families. I'm excited to get to know you and am looking forward to an amazing year. I have been happily married for 23 years. We have 2 children and 2 puppies (Barnum & Bailey). Our son (Schyler) can't decide on a career as a travel blogger or a professional gamer and our daughter (Kaitlyn) entered the Air Force last March and is currently at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS.
 
This will be my 3rd year teaching in Mustang. I spent my first 8 years of teaching in the Putnam City School District with 7 of those at the elementary level in the most fun room in the whole school, the Gym. I am proud to be a physical educator and look forward to sharing my ideas of what PE is all about. 
 
It is going to be a great year.
