Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Brandon Sanfilippo
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education and Health from Canisius College of Buffalo, New York in 2012. Also at Canisius, I completed my masters degree in Sport Administration in 2013.
I made the decision to pursue a career in teaching physical education and health near the end of my high school career and have never looked back! Throughout my four years of undergraduate studies, I worked with students of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds in the Buffalo, NY area. From teaching physical education in schools to helping with social skill development at communitiy centers, I have had the privledge to meet student needs in many rewarding ways.
While completing my mastrs degree in 2013, I continued to teach at a local school district in Jamestown, NY. I also completed an internship with the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena regarding my masters degree. While there I served as the Sports League Intern which included responsibilities such as developing and maintaining sports leagues and tournaments, assisting with public events, and helping with everyday administrative tasks.
I have been teaching Elementary Physical Education here at Clyde Erwin Elementary since fall of 2013. I have coached STRIDE & Robotics in the past and have been involved in numerous school committees, such as the talent show and school fundraisers. Currently, I am the PBIS director.
Growing up in the southern tier of New York State, skiing and sledding have defined my childhood. Although I miss the occasional fun in the snow, I am glad to have that in my past! I moved to Jacksonville, NC in 2013 after accepting a teaching position here at Clyde Erwin Elementary school. When I am not at school, I enjoy traveling, playing a multitude of sports including basketball, baseball/softball, and tennis, and enjoying the outdoors.
Hello Clyde Erwin Families!
Just a reminder to have your children dress appropriately for PE class on their scheduled day of the week. Sneakers should be worn on these days. Dress shoes, boots, etc. are uncomfortable to move around in and ultimately pose a safety risk. Open-toed shoes (such as sandals) are 100% prohibited.
Dresses and skirts are not encouraged on PE day as well, since these clothing types can limit what students can participate in.
