TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught for 33 Years. My experiences includes 8 Years teaching Middle School Health, 8 Years Elementary Physical Education, 7 Years Middle School Physical Education. I also co-taught 7 years of Golf through Kennesaw State University Continuing Ed, and then taught another 3 years on my own.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teachers have tried to change kids behavior by using two words: DO and GET. If you DO this, then you will GET that. I believe until a child THINKS and FEELS about themselves the way they should, he/she may make poor decisions that may cost them their future. I want to engage students -- they will be more motivated internally when I design work that has meaning to them. This is opposite of the compliant student who does work for grades to get to college, honor role etc. -- when you take away those awards they are less motivated to work. If you design work that has personal meaning to them -- they will work at it to a deeper level.I use my health curricula to teach students to focus on their goals. For every subject in health (nutrition, substance abuse, personality styles, decision making, Sex Ed., etc.), students return to their written goals and are asked how this information will guide them toward their goals. Every lesson and activity has been designed to engage the student with what they want, their values and needs for themselves. I want them to calculate personal costs and decide ahead of time whether a temptation/attraction is worth the potential consequences. If you are not walking toward your goals, those goals are only good intentions. Many school districts do not consider Health Studies an academic subject, and a number do not provide Textbooks to cover the subject. For that reason, I look for items that will draw my students interests (what they currently are experiencing and see around them). Students find my lessons very practical and relevant to their lives. I frequently hear from their parents, that they bring home the information to discuss the topics from class.
