One thing I've learned from Twitter is that there are AMAZING people out there who love to share what they have learned and what they are teaching. Coming to Twitter and connecting with these people have shown me just how isolated I was for so long! Since connecting with them and others, my teaching and spirit have been revitalized in many ways.
Another thing that has been revealed to me is that my school's Physical Education program contains other isolated teachers. My personal and professional growth have shown me THIS CANNOT BE!
So I am setting out on a journey to unite anyone who is connected with the Physical Education of our students here at Blackhawk Christian School. This will include Administrators, Principals, Teachers, and Aides.
This journey is long overdue. The overall health of our students is paramount! We as Physical Educators are in a unique position to affect the entirety of a students experience at our schools, from preschool right through graduation. These students will make their own choices, to be sure. But what experiences and factors will they possess and weigh because of our touch on their lives?
I believe it can be done best if all the above-mentioned adults are buying in and communicating on a regular basis with one another. It's time this system exists here at Blackhawk. Do you have one in place? If not...
In the words of Extreme Makeover-Home Edition's Ty Pennington..."LET'S DO IT!!!!!!!!!"
I'm Cliff, an elementary Physical Educator to a ton of awesome students! Here is where you will see my thoughts and activities regarding #physed here at Blackhawk Christian School. Some will be what we're doing at school, and others will be thoughts from my wandering brain.
