Athletics, Physical Education & Healthy Active Living

Message from the Assistant Curriculum Leader of Physical Education, Athletics, Well-Being and The Arts

As Assistant Curriculum Leader of Physical Education, Athletics, Well-Being and the Arts, I have the privilege of working alongside some of our schools's most dedicated and talented staff.  We pride ourselves on providing enriching and engaging lessons for students.  We value our unique community of learners at York Humber and strive to meet the needs of all of our students on a daily basis. 

The belief within our department is that we are teaching lifelong skills and values to students in addition to exposing them to a diverse curriculum.  We embrace the needs and the abilities of all of our students and welcome the opportunity to be an integral part of their learning journey during their time at York Humber. 

Students who struggle elsewhere can find a niche here and an environment that nurtures their talents and them as individuals.  Through dance, drama, creative and artistic expression as well as functional movement, we strive to challenge all of our students to reach all of their goals both inside and outside the classroom.  

The idea of wellness, fostering a positive self-image and adaptive coping strategies are fundamental principles in all of our courses.  We are committed to the academic well being of your children as well as their mental and emotional well-being.

We look forward to working with your child and assisting him or her in any way possible during his or her years at York Humber and beyond.
