1 year - Middle school Language Arts - Chicago Suburbs 2 years - 5th grade (all subject areas) - Chicago Suburbs 1 year - Middle school PE at KIPP Charter Schools - Austin, TX All teaching experience has been in low income areas.
I try to incorporate knowledge into movement based games. Almost any activity can become a challenge, relay, or game with just a tweak. In addition, all notes I give in my PE class (yes, I give notes!) is in a foldable format for students to easily be able to quiz a partner or self.
I am currently teaching and creating all materials with the 2008 Texas Middle School PE teacher of the year.

I am a new-age PE teacher. I stray away from just teaching sports and am very much focused on fitness-based activities and teaching students the knowledge necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
