My name is Brian Gerwig and I have been the Physical Education Teacher at Centennial Elementary School since 2014. I was born and raised in Chicago Illinois and have lived in Colorado for 18 years. I served our country in the U.S. Navy during the gulf war and have led kayak and canoe eco-tours into Everglades National Park in Florida for 5 years. I have been married for 20 years and have two school age children. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 2009. I believe a quality Physical Education program provide's all children with opportunities to learn and practice a variety of different ways to move and control their bodies and practice specific skills commonly used in team and individual sports. My goal is to provide each child with opportunities to find some form of physical activity they enjoy and choose to participate in outside of the school setting.
