Cherokee Middle School

Sonja Crowe » bio


I am originally from Maynardville, TN. I went back there to teach in my hometown for my first five years because I wanted to be close to my parents. I moved to Knox County when I was 30 because I thought teaching in a large county would be fun and it was for awhile. I got married for the first time New Year's Eve 2013. Along with a husband, Tim, I also gained two grown step sons. Wil played baseball for the University of South Carolina and was  drafted by the Washington Nationals and now pitches for their AAA team.  Ryan is married, and works as a trainer while competing in crossfit. I grew up going to the lake all summer, so I was thrilled to finally get my own boat.  I have one sister and one nephew and two great nephews. These are some of my favorite random things: Cheetos, Cheez Its, Mt. Dew, Snoopy, The Wizard of Oz, Wicked, anything written by Stephen King, country music new and old, watches, turtles, Wonder Woman, and cool tennis shoes. I am so happy to be at Cherokee Middle! So far, I love everything about it! I look forward to getting to know all the students and having a fun, productive year. I don't really know what all I was supposed to include in this bio, so I apologize if it is a little off the wall.

First week back

Welcome back! We missed you! This week we will be reviewing procedures. Then we will do some cardio activities and free choice activity time.

Remote learning

Students are not required to login live for PE. Just check the google classroom for activities.


Today's activity on your DEAM calendar is to research 3 muscles. Learn their names and what they do. I would like for you to research the "big muscles" in your legs (2 of them) and your arms(2 of them).

Crazy Ball

This week in PE class we will be learning how to play a fun, active, team game called "Crazy Ball."
Make sure to wear appropriate clothing and shoes and bring your water bottle!
Remember, it's wet in the mornings even if it doesn't rain, so don't wear nice shoes or clothes on PE days.

Fall 2020

Hello Children!!!
I am so excited to be seeing you all again! 
You will be getting my classroom code from your homeroom teachers as well as from me when you have PE.There is lots of good stuff in my Google Classroom, so be sure to check it out. There is a link to a welcome letter that you need to read along with a parent or guardian. 
We will not be dressing out this year so make sure to wear clothes and shoes that are appropriate for PARTICIPATION in PE. We will still be doing lots of moving and having fun. Bring a water bottle with your name on it as well. See you soon!


Students will have two class periods to work on their yoga sequence with their group. The sequence will be presented on their next PE day.
This will count toward their midterm grade in PE.
