My name is Lora Prater and I have been teaching PE since 1997. I started my teaching career at Courtney Elementary School and now I also teach at East Bend Elementary School. I received my teaching degree at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Along with teaching I coached 7th and 8th grade girls sports for 12 years.
Courtney/East Bend Schools offers a well-rounded physical education program for all children in grades K-6. The activities vary from physical fitness education, basic fundamental movements and sports specific skills. For safety reasons each child should wear or bring proper SHOES AND CLOTHING for PE. Also, bring shorts to wear under dresses.
All students are expected to participate in PE. They will be graded on the following: participation, following rules/instructions, cooperation, sportsmanship, and improving basic skills. If your child has any medical condition that I am not aware of and should know about please e-mail with you concerns.
Along with teaching I also offer extra activities for Courtney students:
Jump Rope for Heart
It is my pleasure to be your child's PE teacher!
