Mrs. Manuel

Hello Students and Welcome to Mrs. Manuel's Physical Education teacher page.  I hope you are staying safe and doing well.  

I'm so excited to be teaching here at Deer Valley High School.  I have been teaching Physical Education going on 23 years and I am a strong advocate for education and physical fitness.  My classes this year are PE I (9th Grade) and PE II (10th Grade).  Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is key to a successful life.  In my spare time, I love hanging out with my family, working out, watching movies, and relaxing. 

  • Classroom Tips for your success:

    • Being on time for attendance (mandatory)
    • Having your class ID on and around your neck during 1st roll call is important and valuable towards classroom points (mandatory)
    • Class Participation in Unit activity (mandatory)
    • P.E. uniform (black shorts, grey t-shirt, black sweat pants, black sweatshirt) for class daily (mandatory)
    • Warm Up, Stretches, Cardio Run, Strength Conditioning, & Cool Down (mandatory)

    Any questions, please feel free to email me at soniamanuel@antiochschools.net.  

    PE Expectations are also available under handouts here on my teacher page.  Please feel free to read over the expectations.

    Students are also given a class syllabus/expectations and are asked to review expectations with their parents and a parent signature is required upon completion and returned by the student back to me by their next class period.

    The Steps for logging in to Microsoft Teams, titled 'Microsoft Teams Student Log In Steps', have been posted under my class handouts on this web page.
