I began teaching 6th graders in Physical Education in my student teaching. Since then I have taught in the 7th and 8th grade California Standards in a standards based program in northern California. This year I made the voyage to Guangzhou, China to begin teaching 9th grade health and physical education, as well as 10th grade health and physical education. In the three weeks I have been in China, I have learned similarities and differences between the countries programs. I have also taken on the role of Standards Coach for my department as we continue practicing Standards Based teaching.
I have been doing my best to incorporate academic assignments and assessments to go along with the tradition skill assessment styles of physical education. I have also been working in a Standards Based grading system for the past few years and am now coaching a department on this in China.
