Welcome to Physical Education. My name is Ms. Yerkes and I'm the PE teacher here at Jane Addams Middle School. I graduated from Aurora University with my degree in Physical Education (K-12), Heath Education (6-12), and General Science Education (6-9). This is my second year at Jane Addams. Before Jane Addams I was teaching in Chicago Public Schools for three years. Physical Education is always aimned to be an enjoyable class, and I hope that each student I encounter will find a passion for living a healthy life.
