Health and PE
My name is Jason Shegda and I am the Health and Physical Education Teacher. In 2009, I graduated from East Stroudsburg University with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Physical Education. I also have a master’s degree from California University of Pennsylvania in Health and Wellness. This will be my 5th year teaching at Ross. Our goal in Health and Physical Education is to help each student develop physically, socially, emotionally, and mentally. The extensive curriculum gives students the opportunity to see what types of activities they enjoy, in hopes that they continue to do them throughout life. Students at Ross will come away with an understanding of why exercise and healthy living is so important for a fulfilling life.
