Children begin to lose interest in physical activity starting in 4th grade. One of her goals is to teach her students how to motivate their students to be active and teach them how to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle by implementing various teaching strategies. She has a strong belief in teaching the personal and social responsibility model within P.E. classes. Teaching students how to be a good sport, how to win and lose gracefully, and taking responsibility for decisions they make, are lessons all students will benefit from in all aspects of their lives.
