I also have had the honor to have been named Assistant Coach of the Year 3 times during my coaching career.  

Family - Blessed with a beautiful son, Joseph Giordano, and wife, Kelly.

Philosophy - I do not perceive Physical Education as an organized recess.  My responsibility as a Physical Education teacher are, in my opinion, among the most important in the school.  I firmly believe all of my students are special and posses a wide variety of talent and skills.  It is my mission to expose my students to a wide variety of activities, as to encourage him, or her, to discover and enhance these skills.  As a professional educator, I will present these activities in a positive and professional manner, as to maximize the self-esteem and the self-confidence of my students.  As a result of physical education, my students will learn that physical fitness is crucial for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not only now, but for the rest of their lives.

    Throughout the school year, I will treat my students with the utmost respect and courtesy.  As a result I expect to be treated in the same manner.  While I hold high expectations for my students, I do not expect each child to be the best, but I do expect them do their best.
