Physical Education & Heath - Ms. Dub

 

Physical Education

My name is Ms. Dub and I will be your son/daughters Physical Education teacher for the school year. I am looking forward to an exciting year. I will also be the health teacher for grades 6th, 7th and 8th.

Some background about me is I recently graduated from Lindenwood University in December of 2017. My plan is to go graduate school at St.Louis University in the fall of 2019. My passion is working with children. I have worked with children ages pre k up to 8th grade as a camp counselor since I was 18 years old. I am a huge sports fan. My favorite teams are the St.Louis Blues, Washington Capitals, Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Chiefs. I also play on a women's recreational hockey team called the St.Louis Ice queens.

It is my goal to provide all students with an educationally challenging, yet fun, experience in my classroom.  

Students in grades PreK-2 practice many different skills.  We have fun learning to toss, catch, volley balloons and even juggle with scarves.  We learn to kick, dribble and even hit targets. Students love our fun tagging games, too. Students in grades 3-8 are mostly involved in team sports.  Cooperation and Good Sportsmanship are encouraged and expected by all. We play games such as Soccer, Volleyball, Kickball, Wiffle Ball, Handball, Basketball and also Invasion Activities.
What can my child wear to Gym class?
    All students must come to school in their school uniform.  Our school uniform is considered appropriate for gym class. However, some students prefer to wear something more comfortable during gym.  In this case, students are allowed to bring PLAIN BLACK OR BLUE shorts or sweatpants/athletic-type pants to change into. Some students are able to wear their shorts underneath their skirt or pants for quick changing. Most students do not change shirts, but if they choose to do so, the shirt must be plain white. Students will be graded on participation and behavior, they can earn 5 points each class period 3 for participating and 2 for behavior.

Tennis shoes are required on gym days.  
 

No jewelry allowed during gym
 

Health will be taught to the middle school students. We will be learning about nutrition, mental health, how to manange stress and many other topics. Students will work in groups on a research project where they do futher research about a mental illness and create a poster or PowerPoint to present to the class. We will also be watching a hallmark movie called Front of The class as part of our mental health unit.

 

 

Finally, I want you to know that one of my most important goals this year is to keep the lines of communication open with you. I am available every day to talk with you between 7:30am. and 8:00 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Please don’t hesitate to or ddub@btc-schools.org you have any questions or concerns during the year.
