My name is Karen Southward and I am blessed to be a certified p.e. specialist at Thomas Elementary! This is my 34th year of teaching p.e. and I still absolutely love it!! We have wonderful students at our school who are fortunate to have 30 minutes of instruction on a daily basis!! I also have a super aide, Sandra Melchor, who works with each class. It is important to us to make p.e. be the best part of the students’ day and a place where they can learn physical skills that they can use for a lifetime. Healthy kids make better learners!!!
