Philosophy of Physical
Physical education is an integral part of the total education program. Physical education allows students the opportunities to learn about physical activity
while participating in it. It provides students with a chance to learn about
many aspects of life: fitness, teamwork, sportsmanship, creativeness, dedication,
cooperation and many more. Exhibiting a physically active lifestyle allows students
to learn about different aspects of fitness while having fun. I believe it is
very important to get children interested in fitness at a young age; therefore, they will enjoy it throughout a lifetime.
My job as a physical education
teacher is to get students interested in fitness and as a result spark a desire to continue it as a lifetime activity. I want my students to walk away from each class with a desire to come back and a yearning
to do more physical activity outside of class. While preparing lesson plans,
I will include everyone, not just the athlete. Some of my lessons would focus
on the affective domain. For example, problem solving, group work, social skills,
and self-esteem. I want to make a difference in the program. Students will grow in many different aspects: socially, mentally,
and physically. It is no longer “gym class”, it is PHYSICAL EDUCATION.
