Welcome to Valerius Physical Education! I’m beginning my 31st year of teaching physical education to J-Hawk superstars! I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Northern Iowa in Elementary Education/Physical Education and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Drake University.
Physical Education is an opportunity for children to improve motor skills, enhance fitness levels, and increase awareness of healthy heart and nutrition. Cooperation and teamwork are also important components of the physical education program.
Students are given the opportunity to become involved in our running club program, J-Hawk Joggers. This is a way to improve self-esteem, boost academic learning, and enhance personal fitness abilities. Students are able to participate for eight weeks in the fall and eight weeks in the spring. During the ’22-’23 school year, our students ran over 6,000 miles!
