Mr. Simmonds

Welcome to my class page! 
In physical education we will be working throughout the year to improve our fitness, learn new sports and games and truly understand the proper ideals of sportsmanship and being a positive teammate.
Thanks to our Coyote students who came out to participate in the 25th annual Pride of the Valley 5K on August 3, 2019!  It was a great race and fun was had by all!

Why I Love Teaching:
I have always enjoyed working with students to encourage and share a life long of sport, fitness and learning to lead a healthy lifestyle.  
Fun Facts:
I love listening to music across many genres.  My all time favorite bands are Metallica, Beastie Boys, Guns N' Roses, Linkin Park,  and Motley Crue.  I have lived in the coldest and hottest of climates, but am loving the temperate weather in So Cal.  I love to travel and experience new places and adventures, which California has many.  One of my favorite experiences since moving to California is enjoying the snow of Mt. Baldy in the morning and then in the same day went to the beach in Laguna.  What could be better than snow and sand in just a few hours time!
