Mr. Becker's Mission
Mr. Becker wants all children to enjoy physical education. Each day he tries to plan activities that are fun and promote action. His goal is to have all of his students moving and having a great time. If each child leaves his class feeling good about themselves and having pink cheeks and sweaty foreheads, his lesson has been successful.
As an Alumni of the Morton School District, it is my pleasure to be back in the district as an educator. My experiences have been varied. (Special Education K-2 in East Peoria, Il and Scottsdale, AZ. General education 3rd grade in Phoenix, AZ and 5th grade in Morton, IL., 4 years at Morton Academy). Currently, now in my 24th year of teaching, I enjoy working in ECE at Grundy.
It is my mission to teach in such a way that the each student can change knowledge into understanding through high yet reachable goals. I hope to do this through an engaging, friendly, and safe environment. I like a quote from Ben Franklin which roughly states, “Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out for that is when you really learn.”
