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 have served many roles within our State Organization, IAHPERD. I have served on the Executive Board as the Social Media chair, on the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Committee, and the Technology Committee. I am a former President of the Northern District of IAHPERD which provides professional development and grant opportunities to 18 counties in Northern Illinois. Outside my 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!
