I had her back in 2001. She treated me great and I am a guy. Of course PE was my favorite class and excelled. We got along great. I don't know what you all are doing wrong. She's tough but fair. All you need to do is do the work and pass. We would laugh when she told us about the "um" because in reality, it looks bad when you are speaking in front of a group. I personally hate it when someone says "um". I had a worse PE teacher than her (according to many of the posts).

So everybody's been saying she is a terrible teacher...and I can understand it, but I do believe she is competent, unlike other teachers- she was the only teacher I've had at Swanson that was actually pretty serious about us being physical, but also having fun! Even though she makes mistakes- so does everybody!!!! And she's only mean to you if you're being bad.. Overall I really liked her- but off course that might be because I was one of the 'favorites...' :D

Not a great teacher. Picks favorites based on how athletic you are. If you're naturally athletic and you get Ms. Kelso (like me) you should be okay, even though I couldn't wait to go to health with Mr. Patulski.

She was my gym teacher. I don't understand how the school lets her get away with having her class be so different and harder than all the others? :(

She kind of freaks me out, and I've heard tons of complaints about her weird assignments. Apparently she makes kids watch basketball games and take notes...which is ridiculous.

Her games are very unfair. She did the basketball thingie with our class, but the boys could only pass to girls, and not shoot. Then, we could only shoot underhand. Also, in lacrosse, we had a very experienced boy, and she said he could only shoot once the whole class, and then when a pass was deflected off his stick into the net, she said that was his shot. She shows a definite preference for girls. She also says that she's the scorekeeper; she counts the grades, not makes them. please read my commen
