My Elementary Physical Education Philosophy

At Tamarac, I would like our children to be confident, healthy and challenged. Quality physical education helps them get - and stay - that way.

I strongly believe that all children benefit from regular, structured, physical activity. We know through research that physically active, aerobically fit children perform better in school.

So as a physical educator, it is my responsibility to create opportunities for students to develop skill-related fitness, develop and maintain physical fitness, have them apply skills and knowledge in a wide range of sports and lifetime activities and help them develop a healthy character when they are participating.

This is what I aim to do to the best of my abilities.
