Alyssa Malmer

I received my B.S. in Kinesiology (2014) and M.Ed. (2015) with teaching licensures in Physical Education, Health, and DAPE from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I am currently in my 4th year teaching Health and PE at the secondary level, teaching my first 2 years at St. Paul Central High School and last year at Minneapolis Southwest HS. I currently teach PE and Health in the White Bear Lake district at North Campus HS and Sunrise Park MS.

My major focuses in PE have been designing lessons that incorporate our new standards and motivating students to embrace challenges and cognitive content, all while maintaining the element of FUN!

In Health, I strive to incorporate a variety of lenses into relevant topics for my students, all building towards unit projects that provide students with choice and agency in their learning.
