• Adaptive Physical Education with Mrs. Karen Ulrich
    For those of you who don’t know me, I would like to introduce myself and share a little bit about my program and myself.  I have a degree in Sociology and a minor in coaching from UC Santa Barbara.   I obtained a degree in Physical Education and an Adapted P.E. Specialist Credential at Cal State Long Beach.  I taught Adapted P.E. for 9 years in Redondo Beach.  This will be my 13th year teaching APE for DMUSD.  My husband Scott and I have 6th grade twin girls, who attend school in Carlsbad.  I am so fortunate to work with such amazing staff and students at my various sites all these years!

    My curriculum includes developmentally appropriate movement activities, games, and sports suited to the interests, strengths, and individual needs of each student.  We will begin each class with a warm-up routine, stretching, body awareness and movements to songs.  Some of the activities we’ll be working on throughout the school year include:  ball skills, catching, throwing, kicking, striking, jump ropes, balance activities, parachute, scooter boards, hula hoops, modified team sport activities, and IEP objectives.
