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.
