As a physical/health education teacher my number one goal is to establish a safe learning environment that facilitates lifelong learning in the subjects of health and physical education. I believe it is of the upmost importance to instill in my students the value of regular physical activity, healthy nutrition, and quality social skills. A student that truly values and understands the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle will implement healthy habits into his/her daily routine for the rest of their life. It is not my goal to only make a positive impact on my students’ health during their tenure in my class. My goal is that upon completion of my class my students have the ability and passion to lead a healthy lifestyle in the present and the future. Valuing health and physical education will allow the students to lead a more active and productive life that will not only benefit their own personal life, but also that of their family, friends, and community.
