My name is Tim O’Donnell and I will be your child's physical education teacher for tsegball and adventure education. This is my 3nd year as part of the Chute Family. I am one of the lucky ones who love going to work everyday, and being at Chute makes it even better. I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a degree in Physical Education in 2011. My wife, Jami, teaches third grade in Niles and we have two wonderful little toddlers running around at home that keep us quite busy outside of school.
Physical education is for every youngster – to help them learn about themselves, learn about their bodies, and learn ways to become physically active. Physical education is much more than students playing basketball, swinging a bat, doing sit-ups, and running a mile. It can and should be a vehicle used to drive each child’s educational success. Physical education is an integral part in the development of the whole child. It is through physical education that students are able to learn about themselves, overcome challenges, set and reach goals, interact positively with their peers, and jointly push their physical and mental abilities.
Our goal is to help all students find a physical activity they enjoy and will look forward to participating in outside of the school day. Soon our wide range of clubs and intramurals will begin. Shortly all schedules will be posted on our new website, please check back soon.
My grades are updated on a weekly basis and you can follow your child’s progress via their sisk12 grade book. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
