Mrs. Donna Way
Carteret Middle School is a great place to be. I am a 6-8 grade Health and Physical Education teacher.
In my classes I hope to encourage sportsmanship, teamwork, and personal growth, over a must win attitude. I find sport/exercise to be a great stress reliever, team building/bonding experience, and an opportunity to strengthen one’s self no matter winning or losing.
In Health and Wellness classes I will promote the power of decision making and goal setting as life skills and educate students on the importance of maintaining a healthy body and mind through positive behaviors. I believe in the value of arming students with practical, lifelong health skills, which cross over subject matters and develop character.
