Hello Keiller Leadership Academy parents and students! My name is Paul Amorillo, I am excited to have an awesome year at KLA. For the 2022 - 2023 school year I will be teaching  7th grade Physical Education. This is my 16th year teaching here at KLA and I am excited to meet the new KLA students and see some old faces. I am originally from New York and moved to San Diego in 2006. I graduated from Hoftstra University in 2001 with a Bachelors in Finance and received a Masters in Physical Education.

 

I hope everyone enjoyed their summer break. I had an amazing summer. It was great to be able to relax and recharge and get ready for the school year. I also was able to get back to traveling! This summer I went to Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca to surf. It was a very humbling experience and I was able to get one of my most memorable waves. I am excited to start the new school year.  I am grateful I get to share my passion for Health and Wellness to the KLA community. I may be your teacher but I will always consider myself a student because I love learning new things. 

 

I practice what I preach! I would never ask you to do push-ups or other exercises if I did not do them myself. Our Physical Education class will consist of an exercise component where students develop their 5 components of fitness. We will be learning about ways to keep our mind and our bodies healthy. Students should be prepared to move their body everyday. The other portion of our class we will be learning about a one of our sport units or cooperative games and activities. My goal is to help you find your passion for  health and wellness and provide you with the tools to lead a physically active lifestyle. When I am not at KLA I enjoy surfing, working out, soccer, yoga and staying active. I also enjoy listening to music, reading and meditation. I hope you learned a little bit about me and I look forward to learning about your hobbies and interests. This is going to be an amazing school year!
