Why I Teach:

I enjoy teaching children the physical and health-related components of Physical Education and watching them grow and improve their skill sets from year to year. Most of all, I enjoy teaching students how to develop their social skills, like teamwork and respect through the use of communication, cooperation, and collaboration. It is deeply gratifying to me when I see children shake hands after a competitive game and say ‘good game.’”
