I have spent the last 25 years in physical education and wellness for youth in underserved communities in NY. I specialize in providing physical education to young people, with a goal of helping children become skilled, life-long lovers of movement. I also specialize in creating a culture of wellness in the entire school community - families, staff, and students. I take pride in marshaling community resources to achieve this end, despite little or no funding to achieve wellness goals. With respect for diverse cultures and their preferences and beliefs, I try to help school communities increase physical activity, improve nutrition, and come to enjoy and value a healthy lifestyle. Earlier in my career, I did traditional coaching in volleyball, basketball, soccer, and softball.
