Luke Barricklow

Hello - My name is Luke Barricklow and this will be my sixth year teaching overall and my fifth year at Toll Gate Elementary as the Physical Education teacher. I also coach lacrosse at Pickerington North where this will be my second season and before that, I spent one year coaching at Lakeview Junior High. I couldn't be more excited to start this upcoming school year and continue watching my students grow. I am confident my students will have a positive experience in my classroom and gain skills and knowledge important to living a life of good health, fitness and overall well-being. I am proud to be working in the Pickerington Local School District and it has been great getting to know so many wonderful people.

BACKGROUND

While most of my childhood was spent in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, I was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I grew up playing football, wrestling and lacrosse so I am a huge sports fanatic. I also enjoy many different outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, kayaking and camping. My past teaching experience includes one year as an Adapted Physical Education teacher in Pennsylvania and one year as a Physical Education teacher at Eastland Performance Academy located in Columbus.
