Excited to begin another year here at Marlington! Looking forward to seeing students learn and explore many new and interesting health related areas in our HEALTH Class. In PHYSICAL EDUCATION, I will be looking for our students to take responsibility for their team roles (SEM) and develop their critical thinking skills as they are introduced the tactics and strategies needed to be successful in a variety of activities (TGA). Additionally, the OUTDOOR ADVENTURE Class will be working on many new projects and experiences while enjoying all the outside resources that Marlington has to offer our students!
