Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ronnie Preston and I am the boys PE teacher at Pleasant Valley High School. This is my 13th year teaching at PVHS. I have a Masters Degree in Physical Education from Jacksonville State and a Educational Specialist Degree in Collaborative Education from Jacksonville State.
I was commissioned into the Army in 1993 and served for 12 years until 2005. I am married to Sonia and have been for 25 years and we have 3 children; Garrett, Josh and Samantha.
I look forward to the opportunity of teaching your kids a variety of physical activities, cooperative game play, sportsmanship, and the benefits of a lifetime of fitness.
1. There is a $3.00 PE fee. This covers gym locker use, a lock if desired and equipment costs.
2. All students must have non marking tennis shoes or running shoes for use in PE. No other type of shoes will be allowed on the gym floor.
3. Students should bring a pair of gym shorts for use during PE. This is not a requirement however it will prevent the students school clothes from getting messed up during PE activities.
2 days a week, weather permitting, are track days for boys PE. The boys are walking/jogging on these days with the endstate of each of them being able to jog a mile without stopping. We want them to reach this goal before the end of the school year.
Please encourage these students to do their best and work hard to attain this goal.
