I have been a physical education teacher for over a decade and work in leadership/coordination roles writing physical education curriculum and teacher professional development/workshops.
I am a passionate teacher who believes my energy should carry through to the students. In physical education, I believe that the 'experiential teaching model' works best, where short, sharp instruction is given whilst I model. Students then carry out the activity individually or in groups while I provide constructive feedback.
