Hello My Name Is...
Welcome to 4th and 5th grade Physical Education!
Hello my name is Ms. Christina Doherty and I am a physical education teacher at Martin Luther King Intermediate School. I graduated from the University of Tampa in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science with a concentration in Teaching K-12.
Physical Education in schools is the cornerstone of an active lifestyle for all students. School PE programs provide the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that facilitate choosing physical activity at home, at school, and in the community. My goal is to introduce a wide variety of movement and fitness activities in a way that enables all students to have fun, feel success, and look forward to their physical education classes. Physically active children become physically active adults. When students leave my program, I want an intrinsic motivation to be in place so each child continues to lead happy, active, healthy lifestyles.
