Welcome to the PE Express podcast. Today I would like to share a little advice on providing professional development. The other day someone asked me, how did you get started providing professional development? It’s a crazy story that just started with kindness. I was attending one of my first state conventions in Texas.
Throughout my career I’ve often wondered, is what I’m doing and what I’m teaching really making a difference?
During this past year, I’ve had to teach in just about every teaching style there is. I’ve had to teach all remote, asynchronous, synchronous, hybrid, all in person, and one thing this pandemic has taught me is that there is absolutely no substitute for in-person teaching. I will never again doubt how essential our role is as PE teachers.
This time of the year can be stressful; meetings, district mandates, testing, schedules, finals, grades, emails, more meetings and the other 200+ things that happen in the springtime. Let’s throw in 2020-2021; COVID-19, hybrid learning, remote teaching, quarantines, and overall uncertainty. Whether you are a first-year teacher or a seasoned veteran, this time of year can be tough both mentally and physically. It’s all too easy to find yourself stressed out and in a rut as the year winds down.
Fitness events like sports day, field day, or jog-a-thon are great ways to get students moving. They’re also meaningful ways to engage local businesses with your school, which could lead to future collaborations and sponsorship. I’m going to share some creative examples of ways to engage local businesses in your next fitness event.
In this episode of the PE Express podcast, Dr. Robert Pangrazi explains the three levels of Physical Education and why they differ. He also shares why it’s important to support each other and how criticizing colleagues is hurtful to the profession.
