Adventures in P.E. Land
an obstacle course!!!
I am increasingly grateful that my journey has led me to this extraordinary learning community here at Carbon Valley, of which I am honored to be a part of, and am thrilled for the opportunity to get to work in creating a Physical Education program that is alive with a zest for fitness, thinking and life.
Here are some things to know about me and my travels. My wife and I moved to Colorado, almost fifteen years ago from Seattle, so she could take a choral music position at CU Boulder (she has since left that fine institution to return to her roots and teach middle school at Trail Ridge). I then took the occasion to return to school and get my teacher’s license (to go along with my Bachelors in English Literature from the University of Washington). I am now beginning my eleventh year at this most venerable of institutions. Besides working with children, my passions include being a dad (our daughter Graciela is nine and will be attending Fifth grade here), writing (children’s stories and poetry), painting, running (my eleventh marathon is coming up in May) and digging around in our backyard.
On a final note, I am a great believer that the boundaries of the learning community we create in our classrooms and gyms extend well-beyond our walls and into your homes and even the greater world around us. So, I will be communicating often, and encourage you to contact me with any questions, concerns and healthy cooking recipes.
