A lot of students are expressing a severe dislike for Physical Education because they feel like they are graded on their "ability to play sports". However, this is not the case, and the new curriculum opens the door for teachers to implement new ideas, methodolgies and activities that are engaging for ALL students. The intent of this workshop is for teachers to come together and share ideas, explore various methodologies, resources, and activities that can be used to make PE enjoyable for ALL students...including those who "hate PE".
PE Teachers K-12
I am currently in my second year teaching grade eight English, social studies, and physical education at Monterey Middle School. I have been teaching since 2013 and taught Inclusive Education prior to making the move to Monterey Middle School. Currently in my seventh year of teaching - second year at Monterey Middle School -this is my second year teaching grade eight. Though I enjoy every subject I teach, my passion is in Physical Education, and providing quality, engaging, and enjoyable physical education programming for ALL of my students.
In addition to teaching, I have experience playing and coaching multiple sports including a chance to coach at the 2013 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. I have a Bachelor of Education from the University of Victoria, a Diploma in Special Education from the University of Victoria, and a Bachelor of Kinesiology from Acadia University.
