This is my sixth year at Riffenburgh and my seventh year teaching. If you can believe it, I taught high school before coming here :)
I love running around and playing with the kids in the gym, I'm a big believer in practicing what you preach so I like to get into the games with them.
I also love seeing the kids grow throughout the years, it has been incredibly rewarding to work with kids every year and see them as they learn and master new skills.
In my spare time (wait, what's that) I enjoy spending time with friends, watching sports and spending time in the great outdoors. I swam competitively for 14 years and since graduating from college I have channeled that interest into competing in triathlons. On any given weekend don't be suprised to see my running or biking through town! I also have (in my opinion) the cutest dog on the face of the earth and I love spending time with her.
Please check out the Instagram page for PE at riffenburgh, keep up with what your kids are learning about physical activity! http://instagram.com/missprigge
PE classes meet for 45 minutes for all grade levels. We spend time learning about fitness as well as developing different skills.
We will work on a variety of different skills throughout the year, but I like to include a "teamwork" theme in everything that we do. I think that being able to work well with others is one of the most important skills they can learn and I focus on this as much as I can. Watching the kids work together to solve problems is so much fun!
Please make sure that your child has proper PE shoes on their PE day, sandals during warm months and snow boots during the winter are not conducive to running around and being active!
