Mr. Dylan Tibbetts » Mountain View Physical Education

Mountain View Physical Education

My name is Dylan Tibbetts. I am a 2012 graduate from the University of Maine at Orono. I majored in Physical Education/Teaching Coaching. For the past two years I was a physical education teacher, and athletic director at Jonesport-Beals. I am an avid golfer and am looking forward to the upcoming year at the Mountain View School.

In my physical education classes I start with fundamental movement concepts, team building, basic skills needed for games, and then my classes become more fitness and game related. I want my classes to be as fun as possible for all students, and that is why I try to do every fun physical activity that I can think of with the students, hoping every kid will like something about the class. They first however in the lower levels need to be taught the fundamentals for each activity.

Students K-8 need sneakers, a good attitude, positive sportsmanship, and good effort for each class. Grades 6-8 need a change of shirt and pants for hygiene purposes each class.

Any questions or concerns I can be reached at 4223200, or dtibbetts@rsu24.org.
