Physical Education

Physical Education is much more than participating in physical activity. It is about learning how to be involved in ways that benefit you most. It is about exploring different opportunities, whether that be team sports, individual sports, or fitness-based activities. It’s about learning the physiology of the body and the impact on the brain and making good choices that lead to a long and healthy life.

I am so lucky to be a part of the Fireside community and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE being a physical education teacher.

Born and raised in Arvada, Colorado, I grew up playing sports, and to this day, I love the challenge and excitement a good rally in pickleball brings or the bliss of watching a beautiful Colorado sunset while riding bikes with my family on the amazing trails around Louisville. I received my bachelor’s degree in Germanic Studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder (GO BUFFS) and my master’s degree in Sport Pedagogy from the University of Northern Colorado.

I am married to Andrew Johnson, who is a PE teacher at Platt Middle School, and we have two awesome boys, Duke and Callahan, and an adorable golden retriever named Lou.

Every year, I can't wait to work with the Fireside kids to inspire them to lead a kind and healthy life. In PE, we can not only focus on healthy food choices and skill development, but we look at being a part of a team and practice treating all of your teammates with RESPECT and KINDNESS.
