My introduction to Highland School was through my two daughters, Amanda and Molly who have been a part of the Highland community over the last 16 years. I had been the classroom assistant to Grades 1 and 2 for seven years before I shifted focus to the Lower School PE position. I was thrilled with the opportunity to instill the love of fitness to the young and eager students of the Lower School. In addition to my Lower School duties, I have also been coaching competitive gymnastics on an off over the last 32 years. I have coached many state and regional champions as well as Level 9 and 10 National Team members. Gymnastics education is a fun and safe activity that challenges kids physically and I enjoy integrating many of the same strength and fitness activities into the Lower School Physical Education program. PE provides a good, solid fitness foundation, but also provides many other benefits, from socialization skills to life skills to the basic movements that enhance performance in many different sports.
