New Teacher Spotlight
Kasey Chapman

Leadership Style | Democratic

List the top 3 things that are essential to a productive classroom | Positive attitude, sense of belonging, respect

What or who has inspired you to teach? | My brother struggled with aggressive behaviors in school and therefore didn't always see "school" in a positive light. I wanted to make sure that all students, even those that struggled with behaviors, were successful and welcome at school!

Describe what it's like to be an employee of Saline Area Schools | Saline is one big family! Everyone is welcoming and kind in all of the buildings. I love the collaboration that happens not only in the grade level, but between grade levels and across the district. Saline really does a great job at putting students first!

Welcome to Saline, Kasey! 

Wise Wednesday: Physical Education Upgrades in Saline

Movement is the name of the game in physical education classes across the District. With a district initiative to support students in achieving their maximum target heart rate, polar monitor watches have been purchased for all the PE departments in the District. The goal is to help students realize the benefits of individual physical fitness. The polar monitor watches help students self-monitor their heart rate and recognize that they are making progress towards their individual fitness goals. In Joe Welton’s PE class at Pleasant Ridge Elementary School, his students target 15 minutes (in a 30 minute class) in their target heart rate zone. Polar monitor watches help students accomplish a number of goals within the “Motivated & Self-Directed” student attribute within the  SAS Compass including:

  • Set learning goals and initiate learning
  • Self-assess, self-advocate, and reflect
  • Persevere through learning tasks

Polar monitor watches have been purchased for all PE classes throughout the District in order to focus on individual fitness and health of our students.
