Physical Education

I am excited to be a part of the Hawthorne family as the P.E.  Teacher.  I have 14 years experience teaching in Elementary P.E.  I have two years here at Hawthorne Elementary.  I enjoy all sports, exercise, and outdoor activities.  I have a B.A. In Human Performance and Sport with a minor in Health. 

Our P.E. goals are to provide a fun and safe environment for everyone to enjoy physical activities.  I believe P.E. is for everyone and not just for the skilled athlete.

My P.E. Mission is to develop healthy lifestyles.  Personal, social, and motor skills.  Movement knowledge and critical thinking skills through exercise.  Most importantly is to bring “FUN” back into play.

Our P.E. Curriculum (SPARK) aligns with the 7 state and National P.E. standards.


New Mexico and federal laws now call on every school district to have a policy and plan to address the wellness needs of students and staff. Our local school wellness policy is an important tool to promote wellness through improvements in school and district programs, practices and environment. Our district wellness plan supports all the interconnected components of coordinated school health:

  • Family, School & Community Partnership
  • Physical Education and Activity
  • Health Education
  • Nutrition
  • Healthy & Safe Environment
  • Social & Emotional Well-Being
  • Health Services
  • Staff Wellness
