About the Teacher/Welcome Msg
Welcome to P.E.
My name is Jamie "Coach" Cross. This is my 12th year in Desoto County Schools. For the past 10 years I have taught P.E. at Desoto Central Middle and Lake Cormorant Middle. I was the head volleyball, basketball, and track coach at both schools.
I played volleyball at Northwest Shoals Community College in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and finished playing at Mississippi State University where I received my Bachelors Degree. I received my Masters Degree in May of 2019 from Arkansas State University.
I am taking a break from coaching to focus more on my family. I have 3 girls Cami, Callie, and Caci. I am super excited to be at Oak Grove Central and making it my home for me and my family. I look forward to focusing on P.E. and to teach kids that exercising can be fun. I hope to introduce new and exciting activities they have never experienced before.
Please let me know if I can help you in any way.
Hey guys, if you are like me then this can be a bit overwhelming. I have 3 kids in school so I completely get it from the parent side. I am learning to get on a schedule!!! I let my kids help with it, so when they complain I can say you helped too!!
Here are some great websites to go to for some PE fun!! Nothing can beat some fresh air and running around outside. Just remember the SOCIAL DISTANCING!! I miss my kiddos in the gym!!!
The Body Coach- he comes on Monday-Friday at 8am on youtube!! It is a great workout for all ages.
Move to Learn is also coming on every morning for a great workout for kids!!!
Let's not forget to eat healthy!!! This can be a fun time to try new foods and get in the kitchen with your kiddos!! Of course it's ok to have the sweets, coke, etc. but just not for the most part. Below is a couple of websites to look for new things.
Please make sure students wear
TENNIS SHOES on PE day!!!
