Coach Wells, here! Coach Grisham, here! We feel beyond blessed to be here at Keenan Elementary! This is our 3rd year teaching together and we are getting really good at reading each other's mind.

 

Our goal is to turn the ordinary into extraordinary! We want the gym to be a place to find self confidence by trying new things, to learn skills that will keep them active for life, and build strong friendships through team work.

Just a little bit about Coach Wells....I graduated from Sam Houston State University. I have been teaching for 18 years from preschool to high school, but PE is my love. I truly enjoy getting to know all the students in the school, keeping kids healthy and fit, and being an active part of a growing community.

 

I have been married to my husband, Robby, for 21 years and we have been blessed with five healthy girls. Reagan is a junior at Lake Creek HS & plays volleyball, and McKinley, Kennedy, Madison, and Taylor are 8th graders at Oak Hills JH. Yes, four 8th graders! They are quadruplets. Life is fun, crazy, and always entertaining at our house. Daddy is outnumbered, but he loves every part of it. We also have a black lab named Macy.

My most recent victory is the completion of the Woodlands Marathon with the help of our Lions on the Move running club kiddos. So thankful for the 20 runners that made it awesome!

And some fun facts about Coach Grisham....

Did you know that she graduated from Montgomery High School? Coach Grisham has been married to her husband, Phillip for 19 years and they have a 16 yr old son, Jackson, who is a sophomore at LCHS.  She LOVES the Lord, PE at Keenan, and staying fit by exercising. She also enjoys relaxing on the beach with her family. And if that wasn't enough cool informatoin, she raises golden retriever puppies in her spare time.

Sept 23, 2020  FITNESS STATIONS

It's time to get moving! We have 6 stations for you to try to complete. You will spend 1 minute at each station and then switch to the next station. If you want to go around 2 times, that is even better! Decide where you want to set up your stations and then you can place sticky notes around your house, pick trees as markers in your yard, or use sidewalk chalk on your driveway to label the following 6 stations.

1. Wall Sits- find a wall to lean against and pretend like you are sitting in an chair

2. Jog in Place- you can jog slow, normal, or fast

3. Sit Ups- lay on your back, bend your knees, and do as many curl ups or sit ups as you can do

4. Line Jumps- find a line or make one with a jump rope or broom handle, jump over side to side, crisscross, front to back

5. Hopscotch- you can draw your own hopscotch course on the driveway or just pretend

6. Planks- low plank on your forearm, high plank with straight arms, or a combination of high and low

Your muscles will be so happy you did this! What part of your body did you work the most at each station? Don't forget your heart is a muscle, so any exercise that increases your heart rate (beats per minute) is also helping your heart get stronger. Challenge: Take your resting heart rate before you exercise (find your pulse & count how many times your heart beats in one minute) and then take your heart rate after moving. Compare those numbers. Which one should be higher? Was yours?

Does your child want their own set of Speed Stack cups to help keep them busy during these "remote learning" days? Cup stacking works on hand-eye coordination and left brain-right brain activity.
