Degrees and Certifications:
Hi parents and students! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! My name is Mr. Rose and I am the primary P.E. teacher here at Marsh Elementary. I am looking forward to seeing everyone back in person after more than a year away from our campus and getting our students active again.
ABOUT MR. ROSE
This will be my 6th year working in Antioch Unified and my 3rd year at Marsh. When I was in elementary school, I loved P.E. My passion for being active and playing sports led me to play soccer and baseball growing up. My focus was on baseball where I was a pitcher and shortstop until Junior College. From there, I worked as and E.M.T. and taught C.P.R. to healthcare professionals. I then worked as a personal trainer in Palo Alto at a gym called Equinox. I trained all types of clients ranging from Division 1 athletes to the elderly population. After getting married and ready to start a family, I decided to go back to school and continue in the field of education. Physical Education was the perfect fit and I love what I do. My wife's name is Ashley and we have 2 kids together, Jackson who is 5 years old and Madison who is 1 year old.
WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN IN P.E. THIS YEAR
I have planned grade level appropriate curriculum that focuses on movement, cooperation, and good sportsmanship. Along with learning about these concepts, students will participate in fun, safe, and appropriate games that will teach foundational skills that applies to a variety of sports. Students will demonstrate the appropriate skills, concepts, and behavior with a partner, small group, and as an individual. I will provide students with positive and immediate feedback during lessons to help with their progress. The main thing I ask of all my students is 100% particpation and to give me their best effort.
Your child will have P.E. twice a week for 50 minutes per class. I will see every class at Marsh at least one time per week and since we have a large school, students may also see our other P.E. teacher, Mrs. Gallagher. On days your child has P.E., please make sure they have the appropiate clothes and shoes. Students should wear clothes that are appropriate and comfortable to run and move around in. Students should also wear appropriate athletic or tennis shoes. I also recommend sending students to school with a water bottle.

3. Physical education develops a child's character and confidence
