My name is Michelle Starkey and the 2021-2022 academic calendar is my fifth year teaching physical education at Aurora Academy. Physical education is an academic subject and serves as the foundation of a Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP) and, as such, demands the same education rigor as other core subjects. Physical education provides students with a planned, sequential, K-12 standards-based program of curricula and instruction designed to develop motor skills, knowledge and behaviors for active living, physical fitness, sportsmanship, self-efficacy and emotional intelligence.

I am also the Director of Athletics at Aurora Academy. I oversee all sports-related content and ensure our programs are developing a positive environment for students, families and the community. Aurora Academy is one of fourteen participating schools in the Denver Metro League. Within this league, students will have opportunities to practice and compete among other student-athletes in order to prepare for competition at the next level.
