Philosophy of Physical Education

The definition of philosophy is a discipline in which one seeks


wisdom. I believe philosophy of Physical Education is to find the untapped
wisdom in our students to not only enjoy Physical Education, but to help
transform their lives into an ability to have lifelong learning and a healthy
lifestyle.

It can be said that Physical Education is the only discipline that is


being utilized by each student not only every single day, or minute, but every
single moment of a students life. This is due to the fact that our bodies are
constantly physically active every moment of our life. Even something as
simple as sleeping requires physical exertion. Thus, if you are better
physically fit, you will most likely sleep better. Our students do not stop
being physically active at graduation. How, when, and what we teach our
students in Physical Education classes will have an impact on them
throughout the way they live their entire lives.

We cannot be afraid to fail!!! It is important that we are innovative


and creative in the way that we approach the teaching of our Physical
Education classes. We need to remember that teaching is an art. And we
must use our artist (teachers) to help pass along Physical Education to our
students.

In the end we will succeed as Physical Educators if we are successful


in helping students create and maintain a healthy lifestyle while they are in
school and for the rest of their lives. The benefits are amazing! Not only
will we have students that are happier and enjoy Physical Education, but it
will lead to an increase in the student’s cognitive knowledge. We will see
better results in school standardized testing in other disciplines, and
ultimately we will have a healthier happier and more productive America!

Professional Objective

To obtain and secure a full time teaching position in Physical Education and Health
where I can challenge myself to educate students on the value of a healthy physically active

Professor James Mohan

Brett E. Stanwich
Facts:

• I’m a first year Physical Education Teacher

• I Teach Grades 5th-8th

• Size of each class is 28 students.

• All classes are Co-ed.

• Classes meet every other day for 45 minutes.

• I Co-teach with another teacher. And I’ve


chosen a veteran teacher (Mr. Mohan)

• We have all the Equipment we need.

• Our final exam for Cross country will be the


1 mile run.

Questions:
A. Tell me the skills you taught each grade level
for Soccer. Use Block plan with some detail.

B. How will I grade my students in Soccer? Give


Rational? Will I assign a letter or Numerical
grade?

C. How am I going to do these units? (Cross-


country and Soccer?) Together? Or Separate?
How do I assess each student?

D. How do I deal with Medicals? Short 3 or 4


classes and long-term?

E. Set-up an intramural schedule. How many


games will be played? How are teams set up?
Will there be playoffs? Are parents allowed to
attend?
Prior to Answering Questions:

Before I continue on and answer the questions which have been given
to us for our midterm exam, I would like to mention a few things I would do
if I was put in the particular position that is described in our exam questions.

Immediately after being hired into this school district, I would want to
make sure that I knew as much as possible about the district. In actuality, if
I had done my homework beforehand (prior to the interview and receiving
the job) I should already know this information. In the event that I missed
anything, I’m going to make sure I know all the Physical Education teachers
in the school and a little background on all of them.

In addition, right after receiving the job, I want to speak with my Co-
Teacher. In most cases that other teacher has been around for a very long
time, and it is going to be important to understand what type of person he/ or
she is and how we are going to go about working together. Hopefully, we
can meet up for a cup of coffee or dinner. Perhaps she is in her late 20’s
early 30’s and knows how to cook….even better!

After speaking with our co-teacher, it is also going to be important to


identify the students that are going to give us trouble even beforehand. For
grades 6-8th, our co-teacher can probably give us the heads up on particular
students that might cause problems. For the incoming 5th graders I would
suggest going to their previous elementary school and perhaps speaking with
the Physical Education teacher there to find what students I should keep a
close eye on.

It is also going to be important to know the Principal, the Vice-


Principal and the Athletic Director on a first name basis at the school I’m
now teaching at. I also like to learn the guidance counselor’s names (I found
this very interesting at Williamsville East).

The last people we are going to make sure we introduce ourselves to


prior to the first day of school. Are the school nurse(s), the Janitors
(especially the man who cuts our soccer fields), and the teacher that is the
union steward in our building. We want to join the union ASAP.

I’d also want to make sure I’ve been to the school a few times to
become familiar with my surroundings. Where entrances and exits are
located. The locations of the equipment room, pool, gymnasium, nurse’s
office, etc.
Finally, the first class for every student will consist of classroom
protocol. We will make sure we manage are classes with professionalism
that starts with the first day. Each student in grades 5-8 will know what is
expected of them and what they will receive in return. It will be important
that every student understands that they must show trust, respect, and co-
operation to myself and my fellow Physical Education teacher.
