I hope you all have a great summer!  On the left, are links that you can use to stay active this summer. If you are going to be in 3rd,4th,or 5th grades, you will be doing the Physical Fitness test.  You can also click on the Virtual Field Day and do some of those games.  Have fun!  See you in August!!


Hi!  Welcome to Glendale-Kenly Elementary Health and Physical Education!  This is my first year at Glendale-Kenly Elementary after 11 years at West Clayton Elementary.  I am very excited to  bring lots of new games and ideas to GKE!  

I am orginally from New Jersey where I grew up in a magical lake community.  I had many sports available to me especially in the summer.  This is where I decided that teaching elementary physical education & health was what I really wanted to pursue as a career.   After 4 great years at West Virginia University, I went back home to New Jersey where I taught PE and health for 8 years as well as coached swimming and basketball.

I am a mom to 3 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws,  and 2 granddaughters.   I enjoy sewing sweet dresses and quilts for the girls, but also home accessories with my small sewing business--Creative Custom Sewing.   I also try to play as much tennis as I can!!
