Spotlight on Specialists!
Hi ~ my name is Kristen Mikita and I have been teaching Elementary Physical Education here at SYCSD for the past 20 years. I am very passionate about teaching my students how to be life-long learners while exploring a variety of ways to become healthy and fit. It is my goal to be a positive role model for both the students and staff here at Shrewsbury. I would like to continue to make a difference in the lives of all my students by teaching them that a healthy body and a healthy mind work together to promote academic success. I am dedicated to teaching my students the knowledge needed to lead an active lifestyle through a quality Physical Education program, and it is my hope that they will share the knowledge they have learned with their family and friends.
In the primary grades, we have been working diligently on moving in personal space so we can participate safely in many of the chasing and fleeing games we will be exploring as well as learning to hula hoop and jump rope. In the intermediate grades: we are getting ready to learn about Welnet which is our district wide fitness program. I look forward to fun filled year to work together, communicate, show sportsmanship and support one another by moving and learning. The quote for the year is “Fitness is a Journey, Not a Destination”. I will strive to help all of the students to become active healthy members of our community here at Shrewsbury. Feel free to email me at Kristen.email@example.com with any questions or comments.
