This will be my 9th year as a Health and Physical Education teacher in Prince William County. I am a Prince William native and graduated from Brentsville District High School in 2006. In 2010 I received a BS in Exercise, Sport, and Health Education from Radford University. I am a HUGE Chicago sports fan: the Chicago Bears, Chicago Blackhawks, and the Chicago White Sox! I am also the head coach for competition cheerleading at Patriot High School. This will be my 8th year coaching. The best part of my job is that I get to teach students and staff how to lead a healthy and active lifestyle!


Welcome to Health and Physical Education!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to say that I hope everyone is doing well during this time. I am here to work with you all and please keep in mind things may change as we work along but we are in it together!

On Thursday we will be going live on Zoom for each grade level.  Mrs. Harris and myself will be in one room and  Garrison, Mr. Grinnell and Mr. Goode  will be in a separate room.  We will be discussing the plan for the remainder of the school year and just checking in to see how everyone is doing and answer any questions you may have.  Each meeting will be 15 minutes long then we will have our virtual office hours afterward.  Here is the schedule for Thursday. Zoom information will be e-mailed to you individually.

8th Grade - 12:00 - 12:15 
7th Grade - 12:15 - 12:30

 I have also included the lay out for what a Virtual Monday in HPE will look like below!

Class Description and Goals

Gainesville Middle School's Mission for Physical Education is to provide all students with the skills and knowledge to live healthy and active lifestyles.

Class Materials

  • All students will need workout gear on a daily basis.
  • Students can bring in their own work out gear but I ask that it stays consistent. Ex- Same navy blue shirt and same black mesh shorts every day for PE class.
  • All students need proper footwear. Ex- shoes that tie with a rubber sole.
  • If students would like to purchase a lock for their locker it is $1 for the year. Students will have the opportunity to write their combination in their agenda. Locking their lockers is their personal responsibility. GVMS is not responsible for any unlocked items.
  • More information is available in the course syllabus located under "beginning of the year items"
