I am originally from Slayton, MN where I graduated from MCC High School. I attended Iowa Lakes Community College for 2 years and was part of the Volleyball and Basketball teams there. I graduated with an Associates Degree and transferred to SMSU in Marshall to continue my teaching degree. I graduated from SMSU with a Bachelors Degree in Health and Physical Education, as well as Minors in Adapted Physical Education and Coaching. I previously taught 7-12 Health and Physical Education at Round Lake-Brewster High School before accepting my teaching position at Truman. I started teaching K-12 Health and Physical Education in Truman during the Fall of 2013. I am currently teaching all K-12 Health and Physical Education classes, as well as Truman's Activities Director and K-12 Dean of Students.

Contact Information:

I am available via my email, private message through Google Classroom, or by telephone. I will continue to update the best means to reach me as we move forward.


Attendance/Student Expectations:

Attendance is mandatory at all levels. I am expecting an honest policy as we move forward on this journey. I will have different policies for the different levels that I teach. 


Elementary- You will receive credit along with your daily points as long as I have your weekly logs by the end of Friday of each week. I am expecting kids to spend a minimum of 5-10 minutes per day participating in  any of the activities provided. See below for more information


High School- You need to be signed into google classroom/or google meet by 11:00 to take our daily attendance, before any instruction or activity is to begin. We have 30 minutes each day scheduled for our time, so please be prepared with everything you will need and ready to participate/engage to get as much accomplished as possible in our time together. 

****Elementary & High School:****

 Even though it is recommended to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day- I only have a very short amount of time allotted each day for my class: I will assign things for the time that I am given, but I will also add extras for the students to participate in if they wish/choose to keep them active for longer periods of time. 


Accessibility of Instruction/Coursework:

Elementary- All of the materials/instruction needed for my class will be posted on the students  homeroom teachers google classroom pages. You can also access this information from my personal webpage on the Truman School website under the High School Staff tab. ! I have different PE sites set up for different grade levels. I will be posting new information and activities on a weekly basis on those sites.


        High School- All of the materials/instruction will be listed in our google classroom or in google meet. Students need their email address in order to access this: (lastnamefirstname@truman.k12.mn.us) example: andersonkayla@ truman.k12.mn.us- THIS IS NOT MY EMAIL, just an example of the students emails. There will be an invitation to join on google meet 5 minutes before each scheduled day that we have class to take attendance and daily announcements before we begin our daily instructions/activity.

Parents: 

I will be in contact periodically throughout this journey. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. We will each have to set expectations for this distance learning, and ultimately, your student and I are going to be responsible for how much is learned and his/her success. Your support, as always, is greatly appreciated!
