Physical Education

Our Philosophy

At Bells Mill Elementary School, our goal in physical education is to provide quality instruction that benefits students' physical skills, understanding of movement concepts, and social-emotional well-being. We look to provide opportunities for ALL students to learn about the fundamental movement skills necessary to participate in a wide variety of physical activities for their lifetime. We promote a positive classroom environment where students feel comfortable taking risks and enjoy learning from each other. Students learn to respect each other's ideas and work together to solve problems.

Mr. Tom


Hello! My name is Kevin Tom and this is my 7th year teaching physical education.  Previously, I was a second grade teacher at Roscoe Nix Elementary school for 7 years. I enjoy integrating critical thinking skills into the physical education classroom to improve students’ self-reflection on performance and problem solving through discourse with others.   


I am married and have 3 children (ages 6, 8, and 10). In my spare time I enjoy hiking, fishing/kayaking, cooking, fixing things that break and exercising with my family. My favorite sports include basketball, volleyball, pickleball and bowling.
