Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Brian McPherson, and I'm excited to be teaching Physical Education at Banneker Elementary School. I'm originally from Bangor, Maine, and attended Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. I began my teaching career overseas in Mexico City where I taught for two years and then moved to Las Vegas where I taught for three years. The majority of my teaching career has been in Northern Virginia - in both Fairfax County and Loudoun County Public Schools. It's hard to believe that this will be my 28th year teaching!
I believe a quality Physical Education program supports the physical, cognitive and social emotional well-being of every child. I truly feel teaching Physical Education provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth through movement. It is my hope as a teacher to get students excited about fitness and movement.
My hobbies include spending time with my family, cheering my kids on during lacrosse and cheer, being outdoors and traveling back home to Maine.
I look forward to becoming part of the Banneker community. I am very excited to be part of such a small and close-knit family.
