I am currently in my 7th year of teaching Physical Education & Outdoor Education in the Port Washington School District.
Prior to Port Washington, I taught for 6 years in the Levittown School District at MacArthur High School.
Current Classes: * 9/10 Physical Education
* Outdoor Education
Attendance Policy: See the Student Handbook (pages 8-9) for our School Attendance Policy
(85% Attendance Rule).
In the Physical Education Department, 3 Absences in one quarter will result in a grade of F* if missed classes are not made up. Students can make up classes by going to a Physical Education class during a free period in their schedule and asking a teacher if a make-up is possible. When class is made-up, that teacher will supply the student with a signed card that should be turned in to receive credit. Morning and after-school make-up opportunities will be provided to all students at the end of the 2nd and 4th Quarters only. Specific dates and times for these additional make-up's will be posted on locker room doors and announced at the beginning of class as the quarter closing dates near. Students are expected to arrive to class on-time. Questions regarding personal absences can be discussed with the teacher before class begins and after the class is dismissed.
Grading Policy: Grades are based on class participation, effort, preparation and attendance. Each student will receive a Daily Grade, as well as individual asessments from each instructional unit in the curriculum. You may also refer to the Student Handbook for Department-wide grading policy and dress code, (page 12).
*Medicals: See the Student Handbook, the Physical Education Staff or the Health Office with any questions regarding daily and long-term Medicals. Any students who are on a long-term medical leave will need to provide up-to-date medical notes from the physician. Written assignments will be provided to all students who are on a Long-Term Medical and they will be completed during class time.
