Welcome to a new and exciting school year!
I am Tiffany Edmondson, and I am so excited to serve as the new Physical Education teacher here at Pearl Upper! I am the Pearl High School assistant swim coach as well. This is my sixth year teaching. I previous taught elementary P.E. in Vicksburg, MS for the last 5 years. I am a graduate from Mississippi State University. I received my bachelors degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology, and completed the masters in education program. GO DAWGS! I love teaching P.E. because I get to mold young minds in the knowledge of physical fitness, work in a fun environment, and make a differnce in every child. This is such an important class for students because it teaches them the value of staying active, and it promotes healthy lifestyles among students. I am so excited to get this school year started and learn more about YOU! GO PIRATES!
I have been happily married for 4 years, and we had our first child in May of this year! Our daughter, Lynlee, has us wrapped around her little finger. We have two fur children: Mozzie (lab/husky mix), and Lizzie (golden retriever). I love my family God has so richly blessed me with, traveling, working out, being active, being outside, coaching swim, and of course teaching P.E.
This year in P.E. will look different from previous years, but we are going to continue to develop multiple skills. These skills include but are not limited to fundamental motor skills, manipulative skills and movement experiences, use non-locomotor skills in combination with locomotor skills, and the health/nutrition aspect of physical education. Cognitive concepts in association with movement will enable the student to demonstrate positive attitudes toward healthy lifestyles and physical activities.
