Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the Allenwood Gym! My name is Jen Salt and teamed up with Mr. Maritt and Mr. Farrell we ARE the Tremendous Trio in Physical Education and Health. This is my 29th year teaching in Wall Township. Prior to Allenwood, I thoroughly enjoyed 20 years at Wall Intermediate School. Since my move to elementary school, it is abundantly clear to me that this is the age group I was meant to educate. I love to play and educate through play! I truly believe that everything you need to know about being an exceptional and successful human can be learned and developed in the course of Physical Education.
Our mission in Physical Education is to empower all students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life. Physical Education is a sequential educational program. It is based on physical activities undertaken in an active, caring, supportive and nonthreatening atmosphere in which every student is challenged and experiences success. Students with disabilities are provided with a learning environment that is modified, when necessary, to allow for maximum participation. We are committed to providing a safe and positive learning environment in which all students achieve personal bests and success. The goal of the program is to guide young lives towards healthy and active futures.
My favorite things include: jokes and laughing, family game nights of cards/dominoes, the beach (especially riding the waves), walking my sweet dog Duncan, and watching the same TV shows over and over (New Girl, The Office, Brooklyn 99, Parks and Rec to name a few).
I am looking forward to a year of smiles, fun and laughter!
