Mr. George Putvinski

Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year!

A little information about me.

I started my teaching career in Jersey City in 2000.  I taught at Liberty Academy Charter School for two years before coming to Manville in 2002.  I started at ABIS and taught Health and Physical Education there for 9 years before making the switch to Roosevelt.  For a few years, I spent my mornings at Weston teaching Health and then traveled to Roosevelt in the afternoons to teach Physical Education.  I am very happy to now be at Roosevelt all day where I teach Physical Education.

I earned an Associates Degree from Raritan Valley Community College and then took a variety of classes at Union County College and Kean University.  I earned my Bachelor's of Science Degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa (GO BULLS!!). 

I have been studying "Adventure Learning" through a joint program between an organization called Project Adventure and Plymouth State University, where I hope to complete my Master's Degree and obtain certification as a Challenge Course Supervisor.  

In the winter, I serve as the Head Coach for the ABIS Wrestling team and also assist, when needed, at Manville High School.

In addition, this coming Spring, 2024, I will be serving as the Head Coach for our Coed Golf team at Manville High School.
