Instructional Delivery and Management
Physical education teacher candidates use effective communication and pedagogical skills and strategies to enhance student engagement and learning.

A big part of teaching is keeping the students interested in the subject at hand. In EDU 255 I learned various tools that would help me as a teacher 1) Increase the amount of physical activity in a small class period 2) Increase competency of skill being taught. The tool that I felt were effective and would comply with Standard 4, would be time coding forms and feedback analysis form.  Both of these help when reviewing the lesson see how much time you spending teaching vs how much time the students are actually participating. Feedback analysis form is a tool for review to see how much of your students actually review specific and congruent feedback from me as their teacher.

Planning and Implementation.
Physical education teacher candidates plan and implement developmentally appropriate learning experiences aligned with local, state and national standards to address the diverse needs of all students.

During EDU 255 Basics of Effective Instruction in Physical Education, I was responsible for creating three lessons based on a topic chosen by the instructor to teach my peers. The final project is "Lab D" is where I put together all the teaching tools used throughout the semester to create a 25 minute lesson on disc golf. These tools consisted of activity progression sheet,  time coding form10-day block plan, and post assessment test. I am especially proud of the lesson plan and scoping sequence  that I created for this lesson.  Using these tools I show that I am able to plan and implement a lessons that align with state and national standards that address students of diverse needs( NASPE Standard 3). During this 255 experience is where I feel I experienced the most growth as teacher along with my peers and other classes I participated at this time. Its safe to say that during this experience I fell in love with the dream of teaching all over again.

As a Physical Educator it is my duty to demonstrate that I am a competent in both performance and health-enchancing fitness activities. The following photos are archives from my previous previous college SUNY Cobleskill. During my time at this school I earned 8 All-American titles for the 200m, 400m, 4x400m, 4x200m, and 4x100m and as a team place 2nd overall 3 time at NJCAA Nationals in 2007 and 2008 indoor and outdoor competitions. SUNY Cortland I participated on the varsity Women's Track Team for 1 year then went on to participate in various intramural sports.
