WELCOME TO OES PHYSICAL EDUCATION!
During the 2015-2016 school year, I was fortunate to be able to join the Oakbrook Elementary School staff, and I was named Rookie Teacher of the Year. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Physical Education from Husson University, in Bangor Maine. My mission at OES is to motivate my students to become fit and excited to exercise!

Healthy Tip: Children and adolescents ages 6-17 should get 60 minutes or more of physical activity a day.
Benefits include preventing obesity, decreasing body fat, and limiting their exposure to inappropriate material like violence and advertisements pushing junk food.
The Effects of Watching TV: If you took the average amount of time children spend watching TV, by the time they get to first grade they will have watched an equivalent of three school years in television, with 40,000 advertisements a year - half of those for food. Of those for food, 98% will be for unhealthy food.
By the time they reach 18, they will have watched 200,000 commercials. Imagine the impact of all that advertising and what would happen if they saw an equal amount for healthy foods like fruits and vegetables!
