Program Staff

Alexis Petrosky

Alexis PetroskyI am excited to be pursuing my master’s degree and to be a graduate assistant in the Health and Physical Education Department. In May 2013, I received my bachelor’s degree and teacher certification in health and physical education from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. During my time at Edinboro, I was a long and triple jumper on the track team. I was also the secretary of the Health and Physical Education Major’s Club. I have experience working with children ranging from kindergarten through high school. I completed my student teaching at Northwestern Senior High School and Grandview Elementary School. I also volunteered as a track coach at Northwestern, and worked with the after-school recreation program at Grandview.

Steve CraigI am currently in my first year of the Health and Physical Education master’s program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I recently graduated from IUP with a degree in Physical Education and Sport. I’m honored to be working as a graduate assistant and excited to be part of the Homeschool program. I am an active member of the Health and Physical Education Major’s Club, as well as the Martial Arts Club here at IUP. I am also a member of the honors fraternities Phi Epsilon Kappa (ΦΕΚ) for Health and Physical Education Majors and Sigma Alpha Pi (ΣΑΠ) the National Society of Leadership and Success.
