I graduated from UW-Oshkosh with a Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education with a minor in Adapted Physical Education, and Coaching. I later returned to Oshkosh to earn my Health certification. While attending Oshkosh I competed on the track and field team as a sprinter.
I started teaching at Saylesville in 2005 and in 2009 I enrolled at UW La Crosse to earn my masters in Adventure Education with an emphasis on Outdoor Pursuits. I also taught at Plat Elementary School in the Richfield School District for one year. In addition to teaching, I coached basketball and track and field at Saylesville, and track and field at Hartford Union High School.
This is my 14th year teaching at HoNoR Intermediate (Saylesville). I have taught Physical Education, Health, and Technology throughout that time. I am the staff wellness coordinator, yearbook adviser, Jump Rope for Heart/Hoops for Heart adviser and Fuel Up to Play 60 adviser, cross country and track and field coach and student and pickle ball coordinator.
My husband Jon and I have three active children. Our oldest, Joseph, is a sixth grader at Erin School. He enjoys all sports, but especially baseball, basketball, pickleball and fishing. Our daughter, Olivia, is in third grade at Erin School. She enjoys art, ballet and gymnastics. Our youngest, Michael, is in 5K at Erin School. He enjoys anything rough and tough but he is also a little clown.
Human Growth and Development Unit
Dear Parent/Guardian of Intermediate Students,
In the next few weeks, your son or daughter’s Health Education class will focus on the subject of human growth and development. Your child’s understanding of human growth and development is important as he or she experiences adolescence. We will discuss the many changes that occur during puberty and adolescence.
The curriculums are found in the pdf's below. You can actively support your child’s progress in health by communicating with him or her about the topics covered in this course. If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to withhold your child from this unit, please contact me. Thank you in advance for your time, cooperation, and support.
Yours in Fitness and Health,
Mary Kay Landgraf
Physical Education and Health Teacher
