My name is Mrs. Maggie Walsh and I teach K-6th physical education. I am in my 28th year of teaching physical education. I grew up in a Arlington Heights, Illinois, which is a Northwest suburb of Chicago. I am a dedicated Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs fan.
I graduated from Winona State University with an Undergraduate Degree in Physical Education and Health along with a Masters Degree in Education. I live here in beautiful Preston, Minnesota with my husband, Andy and two children, Caitlyn and Mike. Caitlyn is a sophomore at Winona State University, while Mike is a graduate of Winona State University and will be starting Doctorate of Physical Therapy School at Duke University in August.
My goal is for my students to develop the physical competence that increases self-esteem and participation in physical activity for a lifetime. I will do this by using various teaching techniques, while incorporating activities that will keep students interested and motivated in exercise to ensure our students are getting the maximum benefits of physical education.
