Ms.Dana Svejda - Physical Education teacher

The beach!  Love the warm weather, water, and sand.

"What is the thing you like most about your work?" 

Being able to move all day and introducing different types of movement to kids.

"How has teaching enhanced your skills in other areas of life?"

 It definitely teaches patience, compassion, and understanding.

"What is the funniest thing a student has said to you?" 

That I should consolidate all of my PE equipment into one closet so that I can make a “she cave”  so that I have somewhere to relax during the day :)

"What was the hardest teaching skill to learn?" 

 I would have to say baseball.  I spent a whole semester taking it.  I still don’t love it, but I can hit, catch and run and do have a better appreciation for it.

"Why do you love Ritchie Park?"

 Love the community feel.  It’s like a second family.

Favorite Movie:

 Jaws.  Scary movies are the best!
