2022-2023 Physical Education

Welcome to Mr. Alins/West Mercer's Physical Education Website!

Developing knowledge, skills and attitudes to enjoy active healthy lifestyles. We are eager to share the new and exciting things happening in Physical Education!

Hello everybody,

This is Mr. Alin and I am super excited for yet another great year, although it may look a bit different these days, of teaching physical education at West Mercer Elementary. This will be my 22nd year at this school, doing what I love most, sharing my passion and knowledge of physical education with my students. Our program here at West maintains a strong emphasis on kindness, individual development, team work, skill acquisition, goal setting, and encouraging healthy lifelong choices and activities. With our older students, we'll also introduce health/fitness concepts as well as goal setting and fitness planning. 

A bit about myself. I am a native from the gorgeous PNW. I have a wonderful wife, also from this great region, two young sons in middle and high school, and a sweet photogenic dog. When not teaching, I take full advantage of our beautiful city and stay active running, paddelboarding, mountain biking, skiing, and hiking. In the last several years I have climbed Mt. Fuji in Japan, and summited both Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier in our very own Washington State.

I am truly looking forward to teaching and learning with all of you this year. It will look different undoubtedly, but we will have fun, learn, and grow together. Have a fantastic year and welcome back ; )

~Mr. Alin
