Time: 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm CST

All teachers know and understand the demands of teaching. Every day brings different challenges and students arrive with different issues. Beyond the rigors of working with students are the institutional challenges. Issues such as teaching spaces, class sizes, lack of substitutes, administrative demands, and equipment needs are often controlled by personnel outside of the PE setting. Join us on the next PE Huddle for a discussion with Aaron and Cherrelle about ways to succeed and stay motivated in spite of the adversity that comes with teaching.

Cherrelle Tillis received her Master’s degree from the University of Central Oklahoma and has over 10 years of experience in the profession. She is currently the Physical Education Curriculum Specialist in Fort Worth ISD. Cherrelle has presented both at the state and national level, while serving on the Diversity Section for TAHPERD

Aaron Beighle is a Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Promotion at the University of Kentucky. He is a trainer for physical education faculty, after-school staff, early child care staff and youth sport coaches and has co-authored several national documents including CDC’s Physical Education Curriculum Analysis Tool and NASPE’s Comprehensive School Physical Activity Promotion: A Position Statement. Beighle is the co-author of four books; Promoting Physical Activity and Health in the Classroom, Pedometer Power, Pedometer Power 2nd ed., Dynamic Physical Education for Elementary School Children. He’s also served on the National Physical Activity Plan Education Sector Committee and the NASPE Task Force.

The PE Huddle: A Diverse Look at Critical Issues in Teaching​ | Ep. 21

Join us as we converse with three outstanding teachers who bring us a wide range of experiences and diversity. From New York to Minnesota to Arizona, these teachers have excelled in different environments. Critical issues for teachers such as equity, bullying, character building, and class management will drive this Huddle. Covid 19 and the impact it has had on the teaching process has changed the teaching profession. Will this be the end of virtual instruction now that schools are more open to face-to-face instruction? These issues and more will be discussed as we near the end of another challenging school year. Join us for an uplifting session that will make you think and reflect on your own personal strength and grit.

Developing Activity Habits in Physical Education – The Process of Movement Matters!

Greg and Jordan place emphasis on teaching students “why” we do something in PE before we tell them “what” to do. Prepare for a Huddle that brings to life what many teachers talk about, but few do – motivate students to focus on the process of moving throughout their lifespan. Discussion will be centered on why physical activity is a habit that needs to be learned in the school setting and practiced throughout life. Traditional physical education has often focused on short term outcomes rather than monitoring the process of physical activity for all students.

The Professional Development of Teachers
