Phy. Ed. 2016-17: Still under construction

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year and to the Physical Education Department at Royalton High and Middle Schools.  I am enjoying my second year on the Royalton staff after teaching previously in the Becker, Wayzata and Anoka-Hennepin school districts. 

I was fortunate to arrive in Royalton at a time of tremendous excitement.  Generous investment from the Royalton community is enabling our staff to work in a building whose transformation will be complete before the end of this school year.  Dodging bulldozers and jackhammers will continue to be a challenge for our physical education classes.  But the first big payoff will come this winter, when students in these classes will be among the first to use our wonderful new gym and fitness center. 

I will spend this school year teaching physical education to students in grades 6-7, and my classes will use the Google Classroom learning platform to build our online communities.  I look forward to having plenty of fun with our wide variety of P.E. activities and to meeting the friends and families of my Royalton students.

See you at the gym, and  GO ROYALS!
