Welcome to the Physical Education Education Program at Talahi Elementary!
My name is Dr. Sean Degerstrom! This is my second year in 742, and my first year at Talahi Elementary. I am so excited about working with an energetic group of students this school year. I grew up in Moose Lake, MN, where I was a three-sport athlete, participating in football, basketball, and baseball. I received my first two bachelors degrees from the University of North Dakota, Physical Education and Athletic Training, where I worked directly with the football, baseball, men's basketball, swimming and diving, and the cheer and dance team. I received my master's degree in education at Heidelberg University in Tiffin, OH. During my time there, I worked as a faculty member in the physical education and athletic training departments. I also directly worked with 22 different varsity sports. I have also received my doctorate degree at Indiana State University in athletic training.
I have been involved with creating an inclusive environment to promote physical activity throughout my 20-year career. I look forward to setting a great example and helping establish life-long physical activity lessons for my students. If you have any questions, please reach out.
