"Fitness has to do with the quality of life, not the quantity."
"Fitness does indeed give us those qualities necessary for leading the good life. We acquire zest and vitality to face the day and its tasks with confidence and enthusiasm. We also produce creative energy, which enables us to be free and spontaneous in problem solving. Fitness opens up the circuits in the amazing storage-and-retrieval system that is our brain. And it gives us another form of energy, the willpower that comes with discipline."
-Dr. George Sheehan, M.D.
Hello Burcham Parents and Students:
I am Stephanie Koper, BURCHAM ELEMENTARY'S physical education and health teacher. I am so excited to begin this 2017-18 school year with you! We are definitely going to be moving and having fun!
Here are a few facts about me. . .I have a very active family.
I love to run!!! Running is my passion. It gives me peace and energy at the same time. I have, also, rediscovered my PLAY! (See August's Newsletter for more information about PLAY!) I am loving every sweaty minute of my "Body Pump" & "R.I.P.P.E.D." classes.
My husband and I have two amazing daughters. Aspynn is a Senior at SWOSU majoring, you guessed it, in Elementary Education. She is a very Creative Artist and enjoys Archery and Horseback Riding. Makynna is a Freshman at SWOSU. Makynna shares my love of running and competes in Track for the Bulldogs. (She is a State Champion in Track for the Weatherford Eagles and she All-Stated in XC. She has broken the school record in the 800 meter run and her relay team has broken multiple school records.)
We love playing all types of sports, games and activities.
We are truly BLESSED!
I am looking forward to getting to know each and everyone of my students this year.
Yours in Health, Stephanie Koper
