Welcome to Physical Education at Monroe

Mr. Carlson

Greetings Monroe families and visitors,

My name is Scott Carlson and this is my 22nd year teaching physical education at Monroe.  I am a former Monroe student.  It is a privilege to be able to give back to a school that gave me such a great education growing up.  I attended college at Minnesota State University – Mankato and earned a degree in K-12 physical education teaching, with a minor in coaching.  Several years later I returned to earn a masters in school health education.  I have been the head girl’s track and cross-country coach at Mankato West for 19 years.  I also spent 7 years coaching boys track and cross country at Dakota Meadows.  Recently I was also hired as an assistant alpine ski coach for Mankato East/Loyola and West.

 In 2012 Mankato Area Public schools launched a new K-12 physical education curriculum.  More Information can be found under MAPS Physical Education Curriculum on the Mankato Area Public Schools web page.  I am looking forward to an exciting school year full of fun, learning, and exercise.
