My name is Sara van Someren and I will be teaching your student physical education this year. The younger elementary classes will be focused on developing basic athletic skills such as throwing, catching, kicking, balancing, etc. We play a variety of games that help the students develop those skills. As the students get towards the upper elementary classes, the class is more focused on using basic athletic and physical skills to play in team sports such as kickball, whiffle ball, recreational games, etc. The upper elementary will still participate in activities that will continue to develop and refine their athletic skills.
I want to share a little information about myself so you can have a better understanding of who I am. I am actually an alumni of First Baptist Christian School. I graduated in 2012 and then went to Southeastern Louisiana University and got my bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education for grades 1-12. This is my sixth year teaching at this school and I love it so much! This is an amazing place to be! I have been married for six years and have three beautiful children. Maximus is 4, Tiberius is 3 and I just recently had my baby girl Tehya who is almost 5 months. God has blessed me far more than I deserve.
I am so blessed to be able to be a part of your child’s life this year! Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns you might have. My contact information is listed below. I’m praying for a fantastic year!
