Philosophy Statement

     As a Physical Education teacher, I strive to be influential not only as a teacher, but as a person as well.  I will focus on teaching my students skills and knowledge that will allow them to be physically active for a lifetime.  I will also incorporate teambuilding exercises which will teach my students how to cooperate with one another to assist reinforce positive attitudes not only in the classroom but in society as well.  I will motivate my students through many diverse activities that introduces them to many innovative ways to stay active.

    I will offer team sports consisting of: Soccer, Basketball, Football, Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball, and Badminton.  Along with team sports, I will also incorporate a fitness unit to equip my students with knowledge concerning fitness concepts and how they relate to everyday life. It is important to me that my students are continually educated in each classroom to provide them with proper understanding of the importance of staying physically fit.

   I will also actively involve the student's parents within my teaching.  Through many extracurricular activities for my students to participate in outside of classroom, they will be provided with multiple opportunities to stay active.  Physical Activity is not the only important concept incorporated in my classroom. I will also increase student's knowledge of proper nutrition habits within many of my activities.  Parents will be provided with handouts in order to keep them informed of what is covered in the classroom so they can aid in the student's overall wellness at home as well.

    I vow to ensure my students have a safe a positive atmosphere for learning to take place.  Along with a safe learning environment, I want my students to have fun.  I will continually consult with my students to ensure there is a high enjoyment level throughout the classroom. To ensure a positive environment, my teachings will be related directly to the NASPE (National Association of Sport and Physical Education) Standards.

    Through my teachings, I will allow each individual the opportunity to succeed. Giving each student this opportunity will increase their overall morale and assist me in all my teaching endeavors.  Failure is not an option in my classroom and I will continue to search for the best to allow each student to utilize what they leaned in the classroom to better their overall lifestyle.
