In December, the school hired a new P.E. teacher and we wanted to make sure the community had a chance to meet her. Get ready for more fun in the gym and some Ultimate Frisbee with Mrs. Banner!
“Hello! My name is Mrs. Banner I am excited to be joining the Lafayette team as the new Physical Education teacher. I chose to come to Lafayette School because when I first visited there was such an amazing positive atmosphere and everyone was very welcoming. Before coming here I was teaching elementary PE in Phnom Penh, Cambodia where I got to experience teaching in very warm weather. I have really enjoyed Seattle since I have moved here as there are so many outdoor activities to do such as Skiing, Hiking, Cycling, Kayaking and much more! I cannot wait to explore Seattle more.
My vision for PE at Lafayette would be that I would like to have students develop a positive attitude towards physical education that will last a lifetime. I have many sports that I enjoy playing for example hockey, soccer, basketball and more but if I had to pick one sport that is my favorite, it would have to be Ultimate Frisbee. Ultimate stresses the importance of sportsmanship and fair play, which makes playing really fun. It also has a great community and is just an amazing game to play. I hope to coach the first Lafayette Ultimate team! “
