Long-time local, brand new teacher

Cindy Ramunno

Trina Medsker is teaching physical education at Eagle Valley Elementary School. Medsker was a former tomboy and loves sports, she says. After helping with physical education classes at Gypsum Creek Middle School, Medsker waited for a position to open up.”My goal is to teach kids the basics and have an understanding of those basics so that they’re confident in their skills by the time they reach middle school,” says Medsker.Another goal of Medsker’s is for students to gain self confidence and be more enthusiastic about sports, she says. “If kids come to high school with a solid foundation and excitement for physical education, we can set greater standards and achieve better outcomes for our students,” says Eagle Valley High School physical education teacher John Ramunno, who adds, “Trina’s a great addition to the district’s physical education department.”For more information about the physical education curriculum or programs in the Eagle County School District, call 328-6321.
