Physical Education K-4
I teach kindergarten to fourth grade physical education. My philosophy in physical education is one that is centered on the use of movement and physical activity as a means for individuals to gain skills, knowledge and values concerning physical well-being. My focus is on the students as active learners in the process of “doing” in order to learn.
My role as an educator is to prepare students to live physically active healthy lives by providing a carefully planned scope and sequence of learning experiences. These experiences will enable the student in the acquisition of motor skills, health-related fitness and knowledge, confidence in being physically active, and an appreciation of the benefits of physical activity.
Physical education will also teach beyond the physical in which students will have an opportunity to develop cooperation, tolerance, sportsmanship, leadership, loyalty, respect, and honesty. The ultimate goal is to inspire each student to life-long personal wellness through physical activity.
