Physical Education

My name is Tonyus Chavers. I began teaching Physical Education for Minneapolis Public Schools in 1991. I have Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Minnesota and a Masters of Arts in Education from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. My passion is planting seeds for a love of fitness that I believe will follow students throughout their lives. My love of music and dance are incorporated in all games and activities ensuring fun for everyone.


Through the years I’ve instilled the importance of treating people with respect and giving back to the community. The students have responded with recognition by The American Cancer Society and The Midwest Dairy Council for outstanding fundraising!

An interesting fact about me is that I was inducted into The Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame on June
