I am Coach Campbell and I am excited to begin my 2nd year at New West teaching High School Physical Education and Health. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University in Physical Education with a minor in Health Studies while also playing four years of college baseball for the Panthers. I recently earned my Master’s degree in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University Irvine. I have previously taught P.E. for LAUSD and coached 4 years of High School baseball. I enjoy being active and have a passion for coaching and sports. I look forward to bringing a High School sports program to New West and to a successful 2013-2014 school year.
Physical Education will focus on improving all 5 components of physical fitness; muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility and body composition through a variety of activities. Athletic/Motor skill development will be incorporated into class as well as character and social development. Fitness and athletic skills will compliment each other and students will be pushed to work hard and improve everyday in class. Character will be stressed and students will be required to treat others with respect and develop their social skills by working in teams and groups on a daily basis.
1. Flag Football
3. Team Handball
4. Floor Hockey
The primary goal of the health education program is to improve academic achievement and health literacy for all students. The Health program will strive to develop; critical thinkers and problem solvers when confronting health problems and issues, self-directed learners who have the competence to use basic health information and services in health-enhancing ways, effective communicators who organize and convey beliefs, ideas, and information about health issues and responsible and productive citizens who help ensure that their community is kept healthy, safe, and secure.
