Gregory Chriest

Hi, my name is Gregg Chriest and I am a physical education teacher.  I have been teaching in Aurora Public Schools for two years. Before coming to Edna and John W. Mosley P-8, I taught health and physical education to students with autism spectrum disorders in Florida for a year and in Chicago for five years.  I began my teaching career in Maryland where I taught middle school PE for four years. After all that moving around, I am excited to call Colorado my forever home. In my free time, I love playing and watching sports, skiing, and exploring Colorado with my wife (we just got married this summer!)  The thing I am most excited about for the 2019-2020 school year is being able to come back to Mosley to continue building relationships and pick up where we left off in building the PE program. My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by creating a supportive and inclusive learning environment that fosters respect and allows everyone to try new things, overcome challenges, and become the healthiest versions of themselves. My community needs me to do my job.
