My name is Dan Kirsch. I will be the physical education teacher this year. In this email I want to briefly introduce myself & describe my professional background. My degree is in physical education. This will be my 8th year of teaching. I previously taught K-6 Physical Education in Chamberlain, SD (2006-2009) at Chamberlain Elementary & St. Joe's Native American School. For the last four years, I have been teaching ICT and coaching at Patrick Henry Middle School. I completed my Master's Degree in Health & Physical Education from SDSU in 2011. I am originally from Sioux Falls. I went to Whittier and then to Washington. I played football at DSU. I am an avid runner and participate in half marathons. I look forward to this new venture and opportunity at Garfield Elementary!! My goal in physical education is for everyone to learn to make healthy choices and feel successful when participating in a variety of activities. This enables students to develop a positive attitude toward physical activity and to develop healthy habits, which will hopefully continue throughout their lives. Garfield Elementary students will be encouraged to have fun and enjoy Physical Education. They will also be encouraged to participate to the best of their ability in a wide variety of activities. At the elementary level, certain skills are taught so that students will be able to pursue a lifetime of physical fitness.
