Welcome to Coach Simmons PE page.
My goal as a teacher is to show students that they can become fit and well by making healthy decisions. I hope to instill an enjoyment for physical activity in hopes that each student will continue being active throughout their lifetime.
The purpose of physical education is to teach the whole student, not just their body and movement. Physical education provides the opportunity to teach students about movement, strategies, teamwork, problem solving and health related fitness. Each of these areas is addressed in the GCS Essential Standards and are important to teaching the whole student from the inside out! Exposing students to various physical activities, sports, and methods of fitness can better provide enjoyment of physical activity.
