Letter from the President/CEO

Dear Valued Colleagues,

It is an honor to write to you today as the new President and CEO of Bonnie's Fitware. I am fortunate to be following in the footsteps of the talented and dedicated Bonnie Mohnsen, and I look forward to building on what she has accomplished over many years. I take great care of what has been entrusted to me and give fully of myself in making the best of every opportunity to make Bonnie's Fitware the greatest it can be.

Teaching physical education for over two decades, and growing up in the technology boom of the 90's to the present has fueled my passion and enthusiasm for the role 21st century technologies will play within teaching and learning. I hope to inspire my love and dedication of physical education, physical activity and technology through invaluable resources provided to you.

With warmest regards,

Marie Crosby, Pre-Candidate Ed.D.

President and CEO, Bonnie's Fitware
