My Students

We have a strong community (family) school where all the teachers know all of the children and their families. I teach in a public school. I see 751 students a week. I teach low income students and they are truly a ray of sunshine. They do whatever I ask and they don't complain. We make some of the equipment we use in class.

For every stage of a person's life .....

...there is a place called home.

.... A place where you feel special.

... And where everybody is either friend or family.

My Project

This project will teach my students about teamwork, cooperation, interacting, participation and sharing while working in a large group. A key focus is team building. No matter what you do in life you will have to interact with other people. The students develop positive self-management and social skills needed to work independently and with others in physical activity settings. They will apply movement concepts and principles to the learning and development of motor skills. The student demonstrates competency in fundamental movement patterns and proficiency in a few specialized movements forms.
