I had taught second and fifth grades before the PE job, and used the management and organization skills of the classroom to make PE class accessible to everyone.  My whole goal for PE was to provide maximum fun and activity while encouraging kids to treat each other with respect.

Ian Phillip is 34 and lives in San Marcos.  He loves to surf, snowboard, climb trees and jump on the bed.  Mr. P.E. averages 50-60 parties a year and continues to spread the word that…
