 Welcome to Physical Education

Welcome to Physical Education at WRES. My name is Steve Brennan,  I have been teaching Physical Education at the Elementary level since 1994. I have been teaching in Academy District 20 since 2001. I have been at WRES since 2007-2008 school year. I strive to make my Physical Education program informative, educational and fun.  I hope the students in my class will take away from our time together an understanding of Physical Fitness, the many aspects of fitness, and the methods and activities to reach and maintain individual fitness goals. I stress exercise and sport as a tool for a lifetime of healthy habits and active lifestyle. Throughout the year we will have units featuring individual and team sports. 

My program will include a large health unit that will educate the students on the cardiovascular system and the physiology of the human heart. My students will learn the reason we should exercise and the benefits of exercise and a healthy diet. I stress positive sportsmanship and healthy competition. I make my classroom a fun and educational place to be, tying in IB philosophy with state and district standards and benchmarks. It will be a dynamic atmosphere were the student will feel comfortable taking the chances needed to improve skill levels. Please feel free to join us in the fun.
