Ms. VanMeter

I am one of two P.E. teachers at Prairie Trail School. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. I then received a Master of Art in Teaching from Dominican University. I also take continuing education courses through Augustana University. I enjoy both playing and watching sports. In high school, I played basketball, volleyball, softball, and bowling. My bowling team made 9th place in the state. My favorite sports to play are volleyball and softball. I am an avid Blackhawks, Bears, Cubs, and Illini fan. My goal as a P.E. teacher is to keep students active and healthy, while interacting with others in positive ways. Having good physical, emotional, and social health will lead to positive outcomes not just in school, but in life.
