Greetings students and parents!

Welcome back!  I am super excited about the opportunity to teach your child P.E. for the 2019-2020 school year!  

A little about me...I am starting my 22nd year as an educator in the MCSD and this is my second year at Aaron Cohn MS.

In Physical Education class, your child will learn the health benefits of being physically active, regularly participate in fitness activities, participate in a variety of sports, and most importantly...HAVE FUN!

Please check back soon for more information about what your child will be doing in PE throughout the year.  

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or concerns.
