Welcome to my Zach White Elementary Physical Education Webpage.
Coach Don Kovach
The El Paso Independent School District has developed a well-rounded nationally recognized physical education curriculum that promotes and focuses on the social, emotional and physical development of the whole child. Our students begin in Kindergarten learning basic movements and motor skills. Each year our students continue to learn new movements and skills. Our PE program incorporates learning basic skills into game and sports play.
I am in my 9th year of teaching with EPISD-- the last 6 years here at Zach White Elementary. Though I started my educational career late in my life, I am enjoying the rewards of seeing the students grow and mature through their time with us. I spent over 20 years in several different areas of business management-- mostly in the restaurant business. In my early 40's , I decided to return to college to finish a kinesiology degree started in the 1970's. I graduated from UTEP in 1999 with a Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology. I continued my education at the University of Texas at Tyler-- earning a Master's of Education in Health Education and Kinesiology.
