My name is Brian Gerwig and I am the new Physical Education Teacher at Centennial Elementary School. I was born and raised in Chicago Illinois and have lived in Colorado for the last 12 years. I served our country in the U.S. Navy during the gulf war and I led group kayak and canoe tours into Everglades National Park in Florida for 5 years. I am married and have two children, ages 8 & 5, in 3rd grade and kindergarten. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 2009 and have worked for Bicycle Colorado the last 4 years, as well as, substitute taught in this district. I believe a quality Physical Education program should provide all children with the opportunity to learn and practice a variety of different ways to move and control their bodies and specific skills commonly used during game play, team oriented and individual sports. My goal is provide each child the opportunity to find some form of physical activity they enjoy and may choose to participate in outside of the school setting.
