Hello students, parents, and colleagues. I am Eric Davolt. I have been in education since January of 1997. In the past I have been a para-professional, computer teacher, athletic director, coach, intervention coordinator, and mostly a physical education teacher. The 2016-2017 school year will be my third year at Cortines High School. I hope to see students not only performing at grade level, but becoming responsible in their nutrition and fitness habits. In my classes you will see that the “education” part of physical education is stressed. This will not be a walk in the park, which you should do once in awhile, you will need to work hard. I believe that physical education should be as rigorous as any other class. It’s not “just P.E.”
Now that you have met me professionally here is a little bit about me personally. I have been married for 22 years to the love of my life and we have four incredible children. Our youngest, Boston, is going into 4th grade. Micah is 13 years old and going into eighth grade. London is 15 and in tenth grade (At Cortines High School). Our oldest is Izaq. He is 17 and is a senior at Arcadia high school.
I love endurance sports. I have been a runner since I was 13 and haven’t stopped. I did an Ironman triathlon in May of 2011 a lifelong goal finally reached. I am planning on running a 100 mile race in the near future as well as hiking the John Muir trail, which is 211 miles. It will take lots of hard work, but I have a great support system.
This is going to be an AMAZING year!
