Mrs. Gardner

Welcome to Physical Education with Mrs. Gardner.  I have been working in Cabarrus County for 14 years as a Health and Physical Education teacher and served as the softball and volleyball coach at JN Fries and Winkler.  I am really looking forward to another great year at Northwest.
I grew up in Lynchburg, Va where I played volleyball and softball in high school.  I attended Catawba College in Salisbury where I played softball for 4 years.
I am a huge advocate for children and adults to live a healthy active lifestyle.  My goal is to educate students on how to make healthy choices in all aspects of their life;  nutrition, physical activity, and relationships. 
Please take a look at the video linked below. It details how to care and maintain your CCS issued Chromebook.  Chromebook Care Video
