Professional Summary
As a health and physical educator, my goal is to teach students the importance of physical activity and guide them to living a healthy lifestyle. For the past five years I have been dedicated to both reaching and teaching students in an array of different settings. Most of my time has been spent in numerous basketball camps and programs with children from ages eight to twenty-one. Through substitute teaching children of all ages, working camps and coaching at the collegiate level, I have gained the experience I need to be a successful teacher. I am a firm believer that lifelong learning is a must to be successful and I plan to do just that. I will continue to enhance my knowledge as I look for a full time teaching position.

I am a very caring person. I see this as a strength because students need to have a teacher who genuinely cares for them. No matter the age of the student, students work harder and are more likely to engage in the learning process when they are working with someone who cares. I am a good collaborator. As a Physical Educator it is very important to be open to change. There are many changes that occur in the gymnasium when collaborating with partnering teachers. Many other changes such as weather conditions, space and sharing of equipment all make for the need of good collaboration skills.

I am a good communicator. Communication skills may be one of the most important skills needed in my field. Students deserve a good communicator to enhance their experiences and learning that occurs in the gymnasium. I am a very creative person. Creativity has a place in physical education. It helps me create lessons that are both fun and educational for my students. Students must be exposed to lessons that are meaningful and fun. Having a creative edge allows me to incorporate both meaningfulness and fun while assuring that my students will enjoy the activity while learning.

I am very persistent. As an educator I know that there will be lessons and ideas that won't go as planned but with persistence I am always willing to go back and make the necessary changes to find success. I am a very hard worker. Teaching is my passion and success is my goal. I have the will to do whatever it takes to assure that learning will occur in my classroom or gymnasium.
