Hello, it's Mr. Graham!
I am starting my 22nd year of teaching Physical Education. This is my third year at Williamsburg Elementary, and I have spent the last 16 years here in Geneva split between some of the other elementary buildings within the District. 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.
In addition to teaching, I accepted a new position this year to coach wrestling at Geneva Middle School South.
Professionally, I am very involved with my State Organization, IAHPERD (the Illinois Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance). I help manage their Twitter account and promote all the great things going on within the organization and around the #PhysEd world. I'm also the 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. I also serve on the Advisory Board for GOPHER Sport. I write a regular blog post for them and host webinars on various PE-related topics.
My personal interests include fishing the Fox River & other local ponds around the area, spending time with my family, DIY home improvement projects, and following college wrestling.
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!
