My name is Melissa McNally and I am the Physical Education Teacher at Hurffville Elementary School. For COVID-19 DISTANCE LEARNING INFORMATION, please click the tab on the left of the page titled COVID-19. New activities will be posted each week.
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.
