Hello! My name is Mr. Jager and I am now in my 14th year of teaching, all here at Viking Middle School. Teaching physical education is a great opportunity to show my passion for fitness, sports, kids, and teaching the benefits of being active to your son or daughter. Please feel free to call or email me at any time if you have any questions. Thanks!
I am very excited, nervous, eager, and worried as this year gets started. This is my 14th year teaching and I am glad to be back in person to teach physical education. Physical education class is designed to combine fun games/activities with movement and exercise. Exercise is so important and impacts the entire body. Exercise/activity will work on the physcial easpect of strengthening the heart and muscles but more than that; exercise/activity benefits the mind and social life of the students. Exercise increases blood flow to the brain which helps in school classes. Excercise also helps people to have more energy which helps better overall happiness to help in social lifes. Because PE effects all three phases, we like to think PE is the most important class ;).
We will not be changing for PE this year (at least as of now). Please make sure students come to school in clothes in which they can be active in. In the Fall and spring we will be outside so again please dress appropriately. We are also wanting to make students have propper foot wear in class. Whether they wear gym shoes to school or carry in back pack, it is important to have propper shoes for safety.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's do this!
