Philosophy: The goal of my physical education program is to introduce students to as many different types of physical activities in their 2 years at South Lake Middle School. My goal and hope for every student is that they find an area of interest that will help them live a physically active lifestyle . Whether it be in sports/athletics or health/fitness, my goal is provide students the tool to continue to develop and strengthen their skills. Students in my class participate in: traditional team sports, individual sports, mini games and fitness. My goal is not only to teach students about these athletics, but also develop life skills such as: teamwork, communication, and leadership. My hope is that once students leave South Lake, they will have the skills and tools to be positive contributors to society in their adult life.
