Hello! My name is Chris Martinez and I am the Physical Education Teacher at the Ballico-Cressey School District. I have been teaching for 9 years and I will be beginning my 6th year at Ballico School. This year I will be continuing to teach TK/Kindergarten through 8th grade students in Physical Education, Fitness and Health. The Physical Education Program is designed to enhance the well-being of students physically, mentally and emotionally through interactive, challenging and rigorous activities.
I began my teaching career as a Physical Educator to K-5th grade students in Livingston in 2009 after receiving my bachelors degree in Physical Education through CSU Stanislaus. Those experiences helped me to attain a position in Stockton as a K-5 educator with a charter school in 2012. Shortly after, I made my way to Ballico in October of 2013.
Currently I am the district's K-8 Physical Educator and junior high Athletic Director. My future learning pursuits include attending the yearly SHAPE Conference and obtaining my masters degree in Physical Education.
This site was created to enhance inform, educate, motivate & inspire young learners to take charge of their physical, mental and emotional well being. Here you will also find links to resources, makeup work, and lesson calendars.
I would love to connect with you and answer any questions that you may have. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and on Twitter @BallicoBravesPE.
