My Students

My students are energetic, eager, and excited to come to school each day. They love trying new things and can’t wait to ask me each day what we will be doing. My students love coming to my Physical Education class and having an opportunity to participate in different activities that may be outside of their normal daily routine.

Physical activity, mindfulness, and overall well being is so important now more than ever.

As we plan to return to school under very different circumstances this year, I want PE to still be an outlet for our students.

Our school is located in the small town of Chatham, VA. We have approximately 250 students in grades PK-5th. A large portion of our student population is at a low socioeconomic status. Despite the things that our students may go through, they still love to learn and achieve at a very high level. School is their happy place.

My Project

I would love to be able to add yoga to my Physical Education classes. This would be a great addition during this time because activity options are limited due to social distancing guidelines and equipment restrictions. With this project, there would be enough mats for two classes. Class sizes at this time are smaller than usual. These would make it possible for me to teach two separate classes where the mats are used and then sanitize them for the next day. Once all children return on a regular schedule the number of mats would be enough to cover one whole homeroom class.

Our students have been through an interesting last few months during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Yoga will give them the opportunity to improve their total body strength and flexibility, and it will also give them a chance to practice mindfulness. A strong mind is just as important as a strong body. The individual mats will also help students get an idea of personal space and remind them to social distance.

I look forward to hearing stories of "I showed my Mom how to do Tree Pose", and "We did Warrior I at home yesterday." There are so many possibilities for strengthening both their minds and bodies with the use of these mats.
