Greetings! My name is Maryanne Minser and this is my 20th year teaching K-5 physical education at Lowell.
I received my bachelors degree in Physical Education with a minor in Health Education from the University of Illinois. I am also certified to teach Elementary Education. My masters degree is in Curriculum Development from National Louis University and I have a Nutrition Education certificate from Framingham State College.
I grew up in Downers Grove with my parents and seven siblings, went to high school at Benet Academy, college in Champaign, and now live in Glen Ellyn with my husband Tom. We have three adult children who have left the nest and are gainfully employed (woohoo). Our dogs Miss Whitey, the rat terrier, and Mr. Fred, our latest mutt rescue dog, pretty much think they run the house. I like to spend some time with my four legged friends at the Glen Ellyn dog park and if you're an early bird, you might also catch me at the Y where I enjoy seeing many of you working out in the wellness center or in fitness classes.
