    If you love what you do, you do what you love.  I am starting my 20th year as a Physical Education teacher at Central High and look forward to another amazing year working with student athletes.  I have worked at Central since in 2007 and look forward to many more years as a Bobcat.  Our facilities are the best in the valley with our weight room in my opinion the best in the state.  

    Our goal in Physical Education is to promote an active lifestyle through sport unit development and fitness activities.  We spend 3 weeks on each unit and units covered are as follows.

    Fall Units   
     
    Volleyball, Badminton, Basketball, Soccer, Football, Fitness Center, Hockey
     
    Spring Units 
     
    Football, Softball, Tennis, Lacrosse, Track and Field, Fitness Center, Team Handball
     
    Our goal in Weight Training is to provide an energetic environment that promotes the benefits of lifelong fitness.  Our department applies the principals of strength training with crossfit style workouts that fuse anaerobic and aerobic workouts that blend the best of both worlds to maximize our training efforts.
