My name is Melissa McNally and I am the Physical Education Teacher at Hurffville Elementary School. This page will be where students access PE assignments during remote instruction for the 2020-2021 school year.
As your child's PE teacher, my job is to engage students in vigorous physical activity, motor learning, health and wellness activities, and an overall healthy mindset. I aim to instill the love of exercise and movement into the daily lives of my students, making them lifelong fitness and wellness lovers!
I have been teaching for 20 years and have a BA in Health and Exercise Science from Rowan University. I am a professional member of the United States Gymnastics Association, Safety Certified through USAG, and have been coaching gymnastics for 22 years. I am also a member of NJAHPERD (New Jersey's branch of Health, Physical Education. Recreation, and Dance Alliance). For the past 20 years I have been continually certified in First Aid and CPR as well as concussion training. I currently serve on the District's Health and Safety Committee, the District Nutrition and Wellness Committee, the Janet's Law Response Team, and the Non-Violent Crisis Intervention Team at Hurffville School, as well as the W.T. Joint Health and Safety Committee. I was the 2011 Hurffville School "Teacher of the Year" and "Gloucester County Outstanding Teacher". I am a graduate of Vineland High School and currently have two children who attend both Gateway Regional School and Wenonah Elementary School.
