Physical Education

Welcome to the Physical Education Home Page!

Mr. M’Jumbe Williams (a.k.a. Coach Jay) is one three children. He has one sister and one brother. Raised in Watts, CA, he graduated from Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles. While attending Fresno City Community College, he earned his AA degree and was also proud to be a part of the 2004-2005 Fresno City Community College undefeated men’s basketball team (34-0). He later transferred to Arkansas Monticello University and played college basketball for two years, then took advantage of his skills in basketball to play professionally in Japan for a year. When he returned home, he started working with LA’s Best after school program, while attending the University of Cal State Dominguez Hills, in Carson, CA. Mr. Williams holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Physical Education.

He always knew that he wanted to be a Physical Education teacher because he enjoys educating students of the benefits of living a healthy and active life style.

Mr. Williams has had experience teaching at Los Angeles Leadership Academy High School in Lincoln Heights, and also has worked as a substitute teacher in the Los Angeles area. Most recently, Coach Jay worked at ICEF Inglewood Middle Charter Academy as the head Physical Education teacher.

He is looking forward to sharing his passion for physical education with the students and the community of St. Anthony of Padua.

Increased physical activity during the school day can help children’s attention, classroom behavior, and achievement test scores. Meanwhile, the decline of play is closely linked to ADHD; behavioral problems; and stunted social, cognitive, and creative development.  – Darrell Hammond
