Surprise teaching for 255

Welcome 255 Rockers and I am glad you were so responsive to show off your stuff so early in the semester.  Your willingness to learn and receive feedback will provide more opportunities to grow for the rest of your careers. We never stop learning and growing around here.  I have a saying that "when a teacher stops thinking and caring about student learning, it's time to move on and/change careers."
Here is the playlist for all of your videos from yesterday.

Fireworks for Lifelong Learning

Welcome back everyone!
We are looking forward to a great semester of working together in making education (and in particular physical education) transformative and transparent.

If you haven't heard, I believe YOU CAN make a difference, and I will do everything in my power and passion to help find your voice and make your students' learning the top priority.  They say if your students haven't learned, then you haven't taught properly. My goal is to guide and inspire you in the process of creating physically educated, active and healthy students.  With your dedication and commitment to learning and receiving constructive feedback, we hope to keep all our channels of communication open to facilitate all of our short and long-term goals.

This journey to a new era starts with you and I look forward to learning how I can best assist you in your life and professional pursuits.  To quote a current artist’s hit: "You just gotta ignite the light, And let it shine, Just own the night, Like the Fourth of July". Now let’s get out there and let your light shine through!
