TESTIMONIALS

"The two of major things that I have taken from this course is the "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs" and creating the the checklist. The chart really opened my eyes on how to really to connect to my student not just in a PE room but on a personal level. The chart taught me the different levels our students need in order to for them to be successful. The second part that I really got out of this course was "Creating the Checklist System to Ensure No Student Falls Through the Cracks!" This assignment will help me reflect on all my lessons that I have taught. I believe that this assignment will also help me become a better PE not just by reflecting on my lesson, but how to I can improve my ways on becoming a better teacher."
