Welcome to PE
Welcome to the LJES Physical Education website! On these pages I hope you will find useful information regarding PE at our school as well as ways to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestlyle. We all know that exercise is good for you, but now more research is proving the specific link between Physical Activity and Academic Achievement. So what are you waiting for? Let's get out and play!
About Coach Wiskus:
My name is Kelly Wiskus and this is my 6th year of teaching PE at LJES. My journey to being a PE teacher started as a child growing up on a farm in Wisconsin. No matter what time of year, I could be found playing outside with my 2 younger sisters. I eventually focused on Gymnastics and Track & Field where I competed all through High School. My first coaching experience began when I was 14 at a local dance and gymnastics studio and continued throughout college at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where I decided to major in Exercise & Sport Science & School Health Education. After graduation I decided to venture "out west" where I continued to coach gymnastics full time, then eventually get a teaching position in San Diego Unified.
My teaching philosophy involves developing the whole health of the child to achieve a balance of physical, mental, emotional & social well being through developmentally appropriate activities.
