Mrs. Kerri Puhl
Hello! I am one of two Physical Education teachers at Steubing Ranch Elementary who is most commonly known as "Coach Puhl."
I have a Bachelor of Science in Education degree, a National Group Fitness Certification and teach water fitness and senior chair classes at a local fitness club. I am CPR & AED certified and I am the past Water Sports Chair for the Recreation Div. for TAHPERD (Tx., Assoc. for Health, PE, Recreation & Dance Assoc.) and I love teaching PE!
My husband and I met in college while playing collegiate sports at The University of the Incarnate Word. We have 3 grown children who I often talk about in class. My oldest daughter graduated from the University of Virginia and works and lives with her husband in DC. My son graduated from Southwestern University and played basketball all four years there and will be getting married in the Fall and my youngest daughter is a nursing student attending The University of Texas at Austin and will be graduating this year!
My husband and I are now Empty Nesters, but we love doing fun hobbies like hiking, playing a variety of sports ( especially water sports these days and Pickleball), taking road trips and reading when there is time. We also have 2 crazy dogs that keep us busy.
This will be my 23rd year in education and I am as passionate and excited about teaching today as I was the first day I started. I love seeing kids moving, learning, laughing, collaborating and working hard because movement is life and PE is often the place where we learn how to socialize and work together.
We do many fun activities in P.E. and I am so excited about some of the new things that I will try to introduce this year such as 9 Square in the Air, Birdie Ball Golf and Paddle Games. Some of the other units we will cover will be Gymnastics, Noodle Hockey, Jump Rope, Obstacle Courses, Basketball, Volleyball (3-5), Crazy Games, Cup Stacking, Fitness Stations, Shark Week and so much more! The coaches also organize a Turkey Trot for students, a Jingle Bell Walk around the school, a Cardio Club for 3rd-5th graders during class and an annual school-wide Field Day!
Goals for students:
I want kids to have a basic understanding of what healthy foods are, work on their social skills as they often work in teams in PE, improve their physical skills and to find activities and games they love and continue to do throughout their life to stay physically and mentally healthy.
It's gonna be a great year!
