Future Phys. Ed teacher

i’m going to be a physical education teacher. it really doesn’t matter to me what grade i end up teaching. my job as a teacher is to provide a safe, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which your students grow and mature emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually. It is my job as an educator and future physical education teacher to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe and organized, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. Growing and maturing emotionally, physically, and socially is an idea from Durkheim. There are three principles or elements that I believe are important to establishing or organizing such an environment, One is that the teacher will act as a guide or facilitator, Another is allowing the child’s natural curiosity or beliefs to direct his/her learning, and last but not least is to have our children or students promoting respect for their own body and their friends.

  1. I like the way you put out your points out there, must say, we are in the same field and definitely agree with students meeting their full potential.

  2. I love the fact that you pointed out that we as teachers will help “our students grow and mature emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually”. As I have seen in my past, most teacher’s forget that they are not only there to teach but help a child grow emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually. Coming from a family where nobody educating themselves further then high school, I lacked that emotional and physical support. My teacher’s in high school gave me the support i needed to graduate high school and finish college. If my teachers did not help help me emotionally, physically, socially and intellectually I would not be sitting in this classroom in my third year of college. Therefore, you are absolutely right in implying that a teacher’s influence has a major impact on the student’s lives.

  3. I believe all the teacher should have this in their mind ..“our students grow and mature emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually”..
    Physical education helps children to be more active..

  4. The fact that you want to help your students grow in every aspect is great, not all students have this is their lives, for some we as teachers become their only support system as well as role model.
