As I wake up each morning, I wonder how my days will be. What challenges ahead I will face, today, tomorrow and farther in the future? I live a good life and am on a steady path in following my dream to becoming a physical and health educator.
Physical education teaches so much more than just running around in a gym or playing a sport. It gives children a chance to exercise, learn team-building skills, anger management, rules, camaraderie, and physical challenges, to name a few. These physical education activities will be transferred into children’s play through adulthood. Health education teaches the importance of being and staying healthy. That the right path taught early in life could make a difference in their health in the future. I can't wait to see my students one day have a smile on their face because they succeeded at something I taught them.
Overall, my past experiences and family history have made me into the student and educator I am today and will continue to grow into daily. Every day I will continue to learn and experience. My teaching style will change with new knowledge and new experiences. This is a never-ending process.
I will continue to strive to be the best teacher I can possibly be. I am looking forward to where my field experience in the classroom will take me. The adventures of learning never end.
As per the quote of William A. Ward, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
