My name is Mr. Callahan and I’m currently teaching Wellness at Har-Bur Middle School. This is my tenth year at Region 10 and it has been a delight each and every year. Every student brings a unique energy to the classroom which ensures a new experience every day!!
On a professional level, I have my 092 program in Educational Leadership from Sacred Heart University. In addition, my wife and I (married five years in July) have two beautiful little girls ages three (Ava) and almost two (Bria).
The attachment below, "Middle School Overview Sheet", provides accurate information regarding our grading policy. Please be ready for class with appropriate clothing for activity. If you are looking at your grade online and a zero (0) appears then please see me. If there is a blank in the space, I either do not have your work, you were absent, or the work is pending a grade.
If you have any questions, please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (x17544) and I will return your message within two business days. Remember, when times get tough, think of your goal and those who are supporting you and that will be your motivation for success!
6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Class Outlines:
WELLNESS DEPARTMENT PHILOSOPHY
Our mission is to expose students to a multitude of successful and meaningful movement experiences while fostering an environment that is positive and safe both physically and emotionally. It is our goal to empower students with the skills and concepts necessary to participate in responsible decision-making and demonstrate behaviors to improve and enhance the quality of their lives. We are responsible to develop the whole learner, including critical thinking, literacy, physical, emotional, and social skills. A strong focus is placed on healthy lifestyles and respect for lifelong physical activity. In providing these opportunities, each student will be prepared to lead and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
