Hello, it's Mr. Graham!
I have been teaching Physical Education since 1996 and I'm excited to be working at Williamsburg Elementary. I was recently named the SHAPE America Midwest District Elementary PE Teacher of the Year (2020-21) and as Illinois' Elementary PE Teacher of the Year (2019) by the Illinois Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. I am truly blessed to be working in a profession I love within a district that prides itself in a deep "tradition of excellence" in education.
Professionally, I am involved with my State Organization, IAHPERD. I serve on the Executive Board as the Social Media chair helping promote all the great things going on within the organization and around the #PhysEd world. I am also on the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment committee and the Technology Committee. I am the current Past-President of the Northern District of IAHPERD and use that platform to further the profession by providing professional development and grant opportunities to 18 counties in Northern Illinois. Outside our State organization I work as the Professional Development chair for the Midwest District of SHAPE America.
I am an AVID bass fisherman and my other personal interests include, spending time with my family, DIY home improvement projects, following college wrestling, and presenting at PE workshops & conferences around the country.
I'm looking forward to another great year in P.E. I have lots of exciting things planned this year and can't wait to share my passion for getting and staying active with all of you!
