William Devin, Jr.      
BD My name is William “Billy” Devin Jr. and I am a proud graduate of Lynn Classical High School where I was honored to be the Captain of both the hockey (Coach Tom Fabrizio) and baseball (Coach Richard Maag) teams my senior year. I was also a 3 year member of the school’s golf team (Coach Frank Poska). 

Professionally, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree (Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts) and a Master’s Degree in School Administration (Salem State University).  For the past 20 years, I have taught/coached in my hometown of Lynn at both the middle school and high school levels.

In 2005 I was inducted as a player into the North Shore Baseball League’s Hall of Fame. Presently, I teach Physical Education at Lynn Classical High School and serve as the school’s Athletic Director.  I am blessed to have a beautiful wife Lynne and 4 boy’s Kyle, Brandon, Sean, and Matthew. 

In my spare time I enjoy attending my boy’s baseball, basketball, and hockey games as well as working out and reading. Lynn Classical is the best high school in the state and I love working there… GO RAMS!!!

Your Photo Here Welcome! I’m Ms. Peterson. I am a Lynn Classical High School graduate and have my Bachelors and Masters degree in Physical Education from Salem State University. I discovered my passion for working with children through movement and game play activities while working with special needs children in a recreation setting.

I started teaching in the Lynn School department in 2006 as an elementary physical education teacher. Three years later, I went on to teach health and physical education at Lynn English High School and then at Marshall Middle Middle School before finding my home at Lynn Classical for the past four years. I currently teach both physical education and health education and have been the dance team advisor for four years. I strongly feel that physical/heath education is important to guide our students in making choices to live an active, healthy lifestyle that is necessary for both a strong mind and body.

Please contact me at mcnultyc@lynnschools.org with any questions or concerns.

Your Photo Here I have enjoyed an amazing teaching and coaching career with the Lynn Public School System since 1977. I graduated from Northeastern University- B.S cum laude, and was inducted into the Boston Bouve' Graduate Honor Society. I also hold an additional degree in Dental Hygiene, and am a registered dental hygienist.

My happiest memories were made at Lynn Classical High School where I was a member of the National Honor Society, Miss LCHS, recipient of the Daughter of the American Revolution Award for Citizenship and Community Service, Varsity Cheerleader (football,basketball,and hockey) All star Harry Agganis Head Football Cheerleader, Senior Prom Queen, and Correspondent for the Lynn Sunday Post Newspaper, writing a weekly Lynn Classical High School column. I  taught Sunday School at St. George Greek Orthodox Church, and sang in the choir. I was organist
while a member of Swampscott Assembly of Rainbow Girls-a society of service.

I graduated from Breed Junior High and was a member of the National Junior Honor Society, and winner of the Marion Benvie Speech Contest, and composer of our class song sung at graduation.  I also graduated from Breed Elementary School, and walked home to Waterhill Street everyday for lunch prepared by my mother.

My career began at the Administration Building on Franklin Street under the direction of Dr. Elmo Benedetto, and Dr.Evan Flamer, where I coordinated and taught a federally funded dental health program.

In 1980 I was assigned Biology teacher at Lynn Classical High School.  I  was Varsity Football and Basketball Cheerleading Coach, and National Honor Society Advisor.   I  taught Health and Physical Education at Breed Middle School, and served as Athletic Director, National Junior Society Advisor, and Cross-Country Coach before coming "home"  to LCHS..back to my roots of Physical Education teacher, Cheerleading Coach and Key Club Advisor.

My proudest accomplishment was raising my two children- Christina and Evan.  Christina graduated from Syracuse University and is employed by Converse in Manhatten, New York as a surface pattern designer. Evan graduated from Northeastern University School of Engineering, and is employed as a defense engineer at I-Robot -Defense Division in Bedford, Ma.  I am also the new mother-in-law to Evan Williams (also a Syracuse Graduate) who married Christina in May 2015.  My sweet brother Tony lives in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Guess where I plan to vacation?

As many of you know, I continue to wear my original Lynn Classical Cheerleading uniform at our Thanksgiving rally each year because it still fits!  I am so happy here.... I work with so many wonderful people!  Go Rams!

Physical Education Syllabus

Physical Education is a participation-based class, in which all students have an opportunity to excel.

The expectation is that all students will participate in class. All Physical Education classes meet mostly everyday for a semester. The following units will be taught and explored during the course of the semester in Physical Education:

  • Proper Warm-up/Cool Down
  • Weight training and Cardio Activities
  • Basketball
  • Wiffleball                                                                   
  • Soccer
  • Floor Hockey
  • Pillow Polo
  • Volleyball
  • Golf
  • Fitness Walking
  • Team Handball
  • Colonyball
  • Matball
  • Table Tennis
  • Football
  • Baseball/Softball
  • Badminton

Students will participate in each activity for 1-2 weeks. The activities may change due to facilities and weather conditions. Evaluation is based on daily participation, dress, and sportsmanship. Students with seven or more unexcused absences per quarter will receive an automatic failing grade. A student can receive a zero for the day if he or she fails to change into appropriate attire and footwear, does not participate in the day’s lesson, or displays inappropriate behaviors during class. The following scale show the amount of zeros received in regards to a student’s grade:

  • 0-2= A
  • 3-4= B
  • 5-6= C
  • 7-8= D
  • 9 or more = F
