Mrs. Justine Keebler has been a physical education teacher and coach at SSJ since 2001. She is also currently the Girls’ Athletic Director. During the summer of 2010, she and Coach Bob attended a convention in California to learn a new PE curriculum (SPARK). She says, “I am extremely excited to use the new gym for PE and know that the SPARK curriculum is a great way to celebrate our new facility. After one week in the gym, my favorite quote was from a first grader: ‘Coach, I’m not sweating!’ After many 100+ degree weeks outside, we cannot express our gratitude to everyone who contributed to the Phase I Development Project. I feel blessed to be part of the SS. Simon and Jude community and enjoy coming to work everyday.”

Coach Groft is an alumnus of SS. Simon & Jude School, and is very happy to be a part of the staff. “I have learned and gained so much from this community , and want to pass on the Irish tradition for years to come.” 

 
According to Coach Keebler and Coach Groft: “It is our hope that students in our classes will develop a general knowledge and skill of sports, as well as a love for activity. In addition to physical activity, we also work on building sportsmanship and problem-solving skills. We hope each student leaves SSJ with at least one activity, recreational or organized, that he/she will continue throughout their teen years in order to keep a healthy body and lifestyle.”
