Hello, my name is Allison Cansler. I am the PE teacher at Rolling Meadows Elementary. This is my sixth year at RME, and my 26th year in teaching. I am excited about sharing my passion for health, fitness, and sports with our students. I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 1994. I have taught all levels of students from elementary to high school in the classroom, in Physical Education, as well as coaching multiple sports.
I have two children, ages 23 and 19. My daughter graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio this past May, and my son is a sophomore at Northeast Lakeview College. Both have been very active in sports throughout their lives. My daughter played softball and my son played football and basketball.
I am very excited to be back to in person learning. I have many new activities planned for the students as well as some of the favorites. In PE we do more than play games. We learn social skills, we learn about health and fitness, dance, competitive sports, and lifetime recreational sports and games. I am looking forward to a great year!
