I feel that students learn best by watching people who actually demonstrate what they are trying to teach. I try to be a positive role model to students by:
• Helping to coach both girls field hockey (MiddleSchool) and softball (High School) and trying to make it not only a learning experience, but a fun and rewarding one at the same time.
• Making sure all students are included in learning the importance of sportsmanship and being sensitive to the needs of their peers by teaching a physical education class for students with special needs, coaching our Special Olympics team at MCA,and working several summers at a camp for individuals with handicaps and special needs.
• Organizing a program at lunch times where I we set up a cart for students to
trade or just pick up healthy foods and snacks.
