13GEM will be closed until an indoor gym location can be identified, rented, and opened. The objective is to open for Summer Camps 2020, if not earlier.
Please continue to check this page for updates in the future. Any and all developments will be announced on www.13gem.org and the 13GEM Facebook page.
My sincerest gratitude to everyone who supported 13GEM grow over the past 3 years and I look forward to fully manifesting my PE vision for yall as soon as possible.
I have received numerous requests for an email subscription for receiving updates regarding 13GEM Programs and the Gym Opening. YOU WILL NOT BE SPAMMED. I will send sparse emails out when they are pertinent. If you don't receive an email from me for a while do not think I have disappeared as I am working vigorously, every day, on my physical and financial health so when I do return to teaching everything will be upgraded to 13GEM Specs and Standards. Honestly, yall have only seen, at best, 25% of the full program I have envisioned. I am tired of providing "half-baked" versions of my program as a result of external factors I have no control over. Opening this gym and returning to teaching is my obsession and solitary goal, I think about every day. I miss all my 13GEM students and families and I cannot wait to return to yall upgraded and retooled. You'll see what I've been alluding to:.. Can't wait to see and teach yall again!
Students are ONLY taught by PE Teachers with a Bachelor's degree or higher in Physical Education who will disseminate the 13GEM Structured and Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum
Ample equipment is provided to ensure all students experience high activity rates and opportunities to respond (OTRs)
Using technology in the classroom is encouraged to facilitate learning, which highlights the fact that we focus on growth and learning, not merely supervision.
