Hi, my name is Nick Petro and I am very excited to be your child’s Physical Education teacher. I graduated from Tippecanoe High School in 2001. I first attended college at Sinclair Community College were I earned an Associate Degree in Physical Education. After graduating from Sinclair, I joined the United States Navy. Once my term of service was completed, I moved back to Ohio and attended Wright State University. While attending Wright State, I was a substitute teacher in the Northmont City School District. I graduated from Wright State with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a concentration in Physical Education, Health Education, and Sports Science. I also graduated from Miami University with a Masters in Educational Leadership. I live in Tipp City with my wife, daughter, and son. My passions in life are spending time with my family, fishing, hunting, and any outdoor activity. I am the Head Varsity Wrestling Coach of Tippecanoe High School and the Assistant Middle School Football Coach. I am very passionate about making a positive impact on the children of this community. As an educator I am living my dream. It is an absolute blessing that I get to do what I love to do every single day. I am a passionate and dedicated teacher who puts children first. I develop and implement high quality lessons. These lessons encompass multiple learning modalities, exciting activities, and Ohio Physical Education Standards. I strive to maintain a physically and emotionally safe learning environment. This environment allows all students to develop the knowledge and skills needed for living a physically active lifestyle. If you ever have any questions or comments please contact me via email or telephone. I am looking forward to a great school year and providing a great physical education experience.
