Message from Christina.
I have been a PhysEd Educator for 8 years now where I have been the Health and P.E coordinator. I teach in Melbourne, Australia.

I pursued this career with a passion for making a difference and impact.
I hope the resources and techniques I’ve created can help you in also making a difference in the classroom.

We have the greatest opportunity to make a difference every day. I am a very driven and determined learner and human being.

In 2013, Sarah completely overhauled her grading practices by switching from traditional, old-school grading to standards-based instruction and assessment. Prior to making the switch, her students’ grades were based on whether or not they changed their clothes for class and participated in every activity. Now, when everything’s going according to plan, her lessons are tied to clear learning goals and objectives, and her students’ grades are based on what they know, understand, and can do.

This year I tried to get some live audio reflections form the TAHPERD Annual Convention. Although some audio as not up to par, we managed to get a few really great conversations recorded. We spoke to a group of Houston ISD PE teachers I presented with as well as the OPEN PhysEd crew. Special thanks to the following people:
Samantha Townes, Cara Grossman, Paula Cesar, Nora Ryan, Felicia Ceasar-White, Ben Pirillo, Brandon Herwick, Victoria Otto, Pam Powers.

PE 4 Every Kid with Mike Graham

Mike Graham

I am starting my 21st year of teaching Physical Education. While this is my second year at Williamsburg Elementary, I have spent the last 15 years here in Geneva split between some of the other elementary buildings within the District. I am truly blessed to be working in a profession I love within a district that prides itself in a deep "tradition of excellence" in education.

In addition to teaching, I coach wrestling at St. Charles North HS. I also serve on the Social Media committee for our State Organization (the Illinois Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance - IAHPERD). I help manage the organization's social media accounts and promote all the great things going on within the organization and around the #physed world. I'm really excited about my newest adventure as the President-Elect of the Northern District of IAHPERD and helping further the profession at the state level.

When I'm not teaching or coaching, I like to spend my time at home. I enjoy hanging out with friends and neighbors. Some of my personal hobbies include: FISHING, listening to music, staying physically active in various pursuits, DIY projects around the house, carpentry construction, and following college wrestling.

I'm looking forward to another great year in P.E. I have lots of exciting things planned this year and can't wait to share my passion for getting and staying active with all of you!

My Name is Kari Bullis. I have been teaching at Williamsburg since 2005. I currently teach 9-12 Personal Wellness and Lifeguarding, 8th Grade Exploratory Personal Wellness, as well as 7-12 adapted physical education. I also coach Jr. High Swimming.
My swimming experience started really early in life. Some of my first memories are of being at the pool. I started with lessons as an infant and quickly moved to competitive swimming by the age of six. I swam competitively until college where I taught American Red Cross swimming lessons and coached four years of age-group swimming.
I am a 2000 graduate of Moline High School and attended the University of North Iowa from 2000-2005. I graduated with a BA in Physical Education with a minor in coaching. I completed my Masters Degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotions with an emphasis on Sports Psychology in 2008 from California University.
I currently live in North Liberty with my husband, son, two dogs, and gecko. I am currently the secretary of the Iowa Association for Heath, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. In October of 2012 I was named the Iowa Secondary Physical Education Teacher of the Year. In my spare time I enjoy Zumba, kayaking, swimming, fishing, and anything else I can do outside especially if it involves water.
