Hello. My name is Christopher Michele. This is my 6th year as the Health and PE teacher for grades K-5 at School #5.To me, this is very exciting because working in the same district as you were born and raised in has given me a connection with my students at a completely, more positive and personal level. It is very exciting with new adventures and challenges each day. I love being the person who is given the opportunity to be the first one to point the students in the right direction. It could be teaching them fundamentals of any sport to the importance of self-control. I know we are the first voice (besides their guardians) they hear educationally and it is a privilege that I take seriously. I plan to use the knowledge of leadership in every way possible. Working as teacher you are leader to your students. I look forward to continue working in the district each year as my professionalism continues and grows stronger because of the great students I am able to teach.
