Physical Education

Chris Hanson - Physical Education Teacher

My Qualifications

I hold a bachelor's degree in Physical Education from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater.

My Teaching Philosophy

I believe Physical Education should be something fun for the students, but it also needs to teach them how to lead healthy lifestyles now and as the as they get older.  Physical education should also educate the children on the various strategies, rules, and regulations of different sports.

Why do I teach at St. Joe's?

I enjoy the closely integrated community of teachers, administration, students, and parents in Catholic schools.  The families and staff have a sincere interest in the well being of each other.

Fun Facts about Me

My hobbies include spending time with my son Charlie and our English Springer Spaniel named Butler, musky fishing, and watching Wisconsin sports teams. 

I've also been the mascot, Bernie Brewer, for the Milwaukee Brewers for over 25 years!
