Mrs. Neubauer's SPARK PE Class
It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as your son/daughter’s Physical Education Teacher. This will be my second year at Alexander Elementary and my fourth year teaching at the elementary level. Overall, this is my 21st year of teaching! I have taught at the elementary, middle school, high school, and collegiate level.
I am originally from Clarence, Iowa. It is a small rural town located in east central Iowa. I grew up on a farm very active in 4-H, four sports, band, choir, speech, and drama. I attended Wartburg College where I earned my Bachelor's degree in K-12 Physical Education and K-12 Health Education. I also earned my Master's degree in Exercise and Sport Science from Iowa State University. In 2003, I received the Iowa Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (IAHPERD) Middle School Teacher of the Year award for our state. In 2013, I authored my first graduate level course, Rev Up the Revolution – Your Middle School Physical Education Game Plan, for Drake University’s Distance Learning Education program for educators across the United States and in Canada. I have been married 20 years to my wonderful husband Keith and have two children: Alissa (17) and Ryan (15). We live in the College Community School District and they keep us very busy with their many sports, music, and school activities.
