Meet Our P.E. Teacher
Grace Lutheran School is blessed to be welcoming several new teachers to the school this year, including Mr. Bryce True who is joining us this fall as our new Physical Education (P.E.) teacher. Get to know him in this Glimpse of Grace.
- Tell us a little about yourself.
I graduated from National Louis University with a Business Degree and worked in the logistics industry for a short while. I realized then my passion was working with students as I had worked with high school students over a number of summers. I decided to return to school and now attend Concordia University and am pursuing my Masters Degree in Physical Education. I have worked as a teaching assistant in Hinsdale and as a permanent substitute in Oak Park for the last few years. I am excited about the opportunity to teach Physical Education to the students at Grace Lutheran in the upcoming year.
- What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, working out in the gym, and playing sports (basketball & flag football) I have a 3-year-old son that keeps me on my toes and many workout buddies!
- What are you most looking forward to about working at Grace?
I am excited to meet the students, staff and families at Grace and being to build a rapport with everyone. Grace is tight-knit community and I am fortunate to be a new member.
- What will P.E. look like this year?
I hope to instill my love for fitness into the students at Grace. I believe movement and physical fitness is important in maintaining a well-rounded healthy lifestyle. Physical Education class will include team sports, individual activities, goal setting, problem solving, and FUN! I work hard at building positive relationships with students and I believe this helps the students to stay motivated in achieving their fitness goals.
- Grace Lutheran School is often described as a place where children grow in faith and character as well as academics. How does this apply in your position?
The activities we participate in for Physical Education may not always be easy to perform for all students. I want my students to know that is okay. The key is continuing to work hard and being willing to take on the challenge to reach the end goal. This mindset applies not only to Physical Education but academic classes as well. I am there as a support to help the students overcome any challenges and grow.
