My name is Mandy Littlefield and I am currently a physical education teacher here at Justice Page. I graduated from Bethel College (now University), with a BA in Physical Education where I also obtained my coaching certification. I also have my Health Licensure I received from St. Thomas University. I have just recently completed my masters degree in Special Education with an EBD Licensure from Concordia University. I have been teaching physical education for the past 10 years and I have previously worked in youth sports prior to teaching. I am going on my second year here at Justice Page Middle School.
Hobbies - I enjoy running and walking my dog. I love to do anything outdoors! If I have to be inside I am usually baking. However, most of my time is spent watching my three girls play basketball and soccer.
Family - My husband and I have 3 children: Payton (18), Avery (16) and Macey (14)
Physical Education is not an organized recess. My responsibilities as a Physical Education teacher are, in my opinion, among the most important in the school. I firmly believe all of my students are special and have a wide variety of talent and skills. It is my mission to expose my students to a wide variety of activities, to encourage him, or her, to discover and enhance these skills. As a professional educator, I will present these activities in a positive and professional manner, to maximize the students self-esteem and the self-confidence. As a result of physical education, my students will learn that physical fitness is crucial for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not only now, but for the rest of their lives.
Throughout the school year, I will treat my students with the utmost respect and courtesy. As a result I expect to be treated in the same manner. While I hold high expectations for my students, I do not expect each child to be the best, but I do expect them do their best.
