|Position:||Elementary Physical Education|
Hello! I’m Joshua Gietek and I am teaching Physical Education here at Addison Elementary. I consider myself more of a Physical Educator than a “Gym Teacher.” My goal is to create a close knit community that has an education and love for being physically active. In class we will be participating in activities that will not only get the students hearts racing, but also introduce them to the skills that are necessary for them to be able to participate in and find an interest in physical activity.
I graduated from Addison High School in 2003 where I then began my journey to become a Physical Educator. I graduated with my Bachelors Degree from Western Michigan University (Go Broncos!) in 2009 with a major in physical education and a minor in elementary education. I am currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Coaching Sport Performance again from Western Michigan. I am also head 8th grade football and middle school wrestling coach. I have spent many years here at Addison and have loved every second of it!
