Teacher: Mark Beckerman
Philosophy and Goals:
My belief is that fitness is essential to not only physical growth but academic growth as well. Strong body, strong mind. The physical education program at Greenwood Elementary is an environment in which all students will be successful with activities designed to accommodate each child's level of ability. The PE program is built around many "extras". For example, each year we will do a dance unit, Field Day, Jump Rope for Heart and Jog Day. It is these "extras" which instill the importance of life-long fitness habits.
