I officially become a PE teacher this semester, a bilingual PE teacher, exciting and challenging. Luckily my colleague in the new office(J, his made up name ha) is a very experienced, passionate and dedicated teacher. I have learned a lot since September from his selfless sharing and allowing me to observe his teaching.
Every lesson I observed has been mind blowing. Every single second was a new a learning moment for me. I can’t honestly remember I was taught the skills that I observed in his lessons. Through discussions, J explained the changes he has observed in the 20 years of serving in the same school. Averagely, our 6th graders grow shorter each year; the sports they can play and acrobatic skills they can perform decreased significantly. A perverted schooling schedule and over emphasis on the academics contribute to the phenomenon, I believe.
Sadly knowing how much our students (especially in the school I serve) have missed out from sitting too much in the classrooms, I realized there is a mission on my shoulders to cultivate physically capable and strong youth....LOL
Much to learn about physical Ed and much to play with my first graders!! Fun!
