I have a wide variety of experience teaching physical education and health. I worked in a title one junior high school with the majority of my students being English Language Learners and having class sizes were between 50-70 students. While I was there I also coached soccer, volleyball, and created a school garden. I currently work at International Baccalaureate school, teaching elementary and secondary physical education (PYP and MYP). I see my students twice a week, once in the gym and once in the classroom. Once a month we have a specialized health lesson including: Anti-Bully Week, Red Ribbon Week, 95210 Week, Personal Safety Week, Dental Health Week, Heart Healthy Week, Fruits and Veggies Week, Stress Awareness Week, and Goals Week.
I believe that my role as a physical educator is to create a safe, exciting, and thought provoking learning environment. I believe that it is up to me to help shape the knowledge and the love of a healthy lifestyle. It is my job to treat all students with love, respect, and understanding. Students will learn when they are in an emotionally safe, positive, and nurturing environment. When students are challenged and engaged they will perform to the best of their abilities.

I am excited about teaching because I love working with kids and I know that I will have the chance and the ability to change students’ lives. I am excited to share with them my love of health and physical activity. I know by sharing my knowledge and experience with physical activity I can empower my students to have control over their physical and mental health.
