Professional Biography

  • Welcome to Horizons PE webpage. My  name is Ms. Twiddy and I have been teaching for 6 years. I graduated from Central Washington in 2013. I completed my masters degree in recreation and sports sciences specializing in coaching education in 2017. I encourage students to give their best effort and maximize their opportunity to get active in PE.

    This webpage will provide information about the activities your students are doing in class and the importance of physical education. Physical education provides opportunities for students to exercise their bodies and minds. Students improve their problem solving skills, strategic thinking, and expand their ability to communicate with other students. Students learn personal and social responsibility and sportsmanship. Our physical education program incorporates the 5 components of fitness, sport education, lifetime and outdoor activity pursuits, and health concepts.
