Welcome to Physical Education! I am so EXCITED to see you real soon.  We are going to doing some things different this year in PE.  Some students will be in the classroom and some are going to be distance learning. For right now this web page is mostly for our distance learners to get the content they need for Physical Education.  Either in person or distance just remember to keep you body healthy you need to be physically active for 60 minutes a day.  
Keep Moving!
Stay FIT don't QUIT!

Hello Rockvale Rockets! Welcome to my Coaches Corner. I am a Rockvale native, I spent my elementary days at Rockvale, my high school days at Riverdale.  I then went on to play basketball at MTSU for 4 years and got my BS in Physical Education K-12.  I then started my career at  Rockvale Elementary in 1996. A few years later I went on to get my Masters in Exercise Science.
I got married in 2009 to my wonderful husband Andy, and with that I got to wonderful "bonus" kids. Parker 25 and Sydney 21.  Parker currently works has an Amazon driver and Sydney is entering her Senior year at MTSU. 
A few things that are so very important in my life are my family and my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Some of my favorite things to do when not at school is anything outside especially going to the beach, or hiking in the mountains. Watching Alabama football on Saturday's in the fall is where you can find me on any Saturday of the season.  I watch a lot of sports games and love to "discuss" those games with anyone.
Roll Tide Roll!
Another favorite  is playing frisbee or ball with my dogs! Or going to the greenway for a nice long walk with them and letting them play in the river. We have an Australian Shepherd(Soda Pop) and Australian Shepherd/Beagle mix(Ziggy).
My husband says I love the dogs more than him, that is not true, but a close 2nd for sure:).
I just hope that I can share my love and knowledge of sport and life skills to spread kindness in this crazy world and for every child that I meet knows that I will love and keep the safe while they are in my care.
