Chrissie Lowther- P.E.

I have been an elementary school Physical Education Teacher in Forsyth County since 2002.  I was raised in Jackson, Mississippi and received both my BS Degree and MEd Degree from Mississippi State University.  Hailstate! 

My passion for sports as a child is what directed me into my profession as a PE teacher.  My desire is that your child will have fun in the gym while at the same time learning fundamentals of sports and physical fitness.  I look forward to another year of co-teaching with Coach Rosson and being a part of the Matt family!

When I am not at school I love watching college sports (especially football) and enjoy walking and hiking.  I also like to spend time with my husband and two grown children.
