About Karen:

I am a Physical Education Director for grades 4-12 at Edge School for Athletes in Calgary, Alberta Canada. I teach 320 students which makes up the entire school. I have been teaching 18 years and still LOVE it!

Focus for 2018:

Formative Assessment in PE pre, during and post to direct my lessons and have students recognize their own learning..

Favorite Lesson Plan/Unit:

I just love the variety in Physical Education with new activities all the time! I’m also lucky at my school to teach every student so I have a relationship with everyone and can speak towards their fundamental movement and sport skills.

Current Lesson Plan/Unit:

Last year my year end reflections had students suggest a new sport to add to our programming this year and overwhelmingly they asked for introduction to net game – Tennis.

What is your favorite part about being a PE teacher?

Opening students eyes to the world of Physical Activities to keep them active for life!

Is there a program or event you’d like to highlight related to your PE program?

We are a Sport Academy based school for students passionate about athletics, and I have initiated a Multi-sport Academy program for our youngest grades so they rotate through our academies within their week. We also have a Physical Literacy class for our youngest students in addition to their Physical Education classes.
