Mr. Ben Wells
Welcome to the Bennett Ranch Physical Education web space! I am Mr. Wells and I am the PE teacher at BRES. I have been teaching Physical Education since 2008. I have a BS in Exercise Science from the University of Northern Colorado. I have also been coaching gymnastics, diving, parkour, cheerleading, stunts and olympic weightlifting for over 20 years.
The approach of Physical Education at BRES is to provide a safe environment for students to take risks. Physical Education at the elementary level is about learning skills and movements that are age and level appropriate for each student. The students will be encouraged to FAIL (First Attempt In Learning) throughout the year and how to improve.
Throughout the school year there will be multiple events that are focused on having parents come in and be a part of their student's physical education development.
