P.E. - Mr. Meyers


Greetings Franklin Family,

I would like to briefly tell you about myself. I returned to the field of education in 1999 after a long career in allied health-physical therapy, and sports medicine. At that time and up until 2014 I taught physical education, adventure education (low and high ropes course climbing), and coached interscholastic sports at Wooster Middle School.

My mission at Franklin is to provide all students with opportunities to achieve success in all aspects of the physical education curriculum. The development of physical fitness, age appropriate motor skill development, interpersonal/social construct skills, and fun are what drive our program. Students in 4th and 6th grade each year will undertake the preparation and training for the State of Connecticut Physical Fitness Testing conducted each fall.

I take pride as I know my colleagues do as well in the achievements that our students make both in and out of school. That is a result of developing meaningful and professional relationships with our students and their families which is based upon sound communication. The celebration of Field day each year culminates that bond we have at Franklin Elementary School.
