Interesting Conversation


Last night my daughter’s best friend got married, it was really fun. At the reception dinner there was a lady sitting next to my wife who had just retired after thirty years of being a middle school PE teacher here is Sarasota. This lady really got it, she graduated from Ball State when there was a curriculum to prepare teacher how to teach. She said she was appalled at the young teachers coming out of school today. She said they know the sport they played, but have no idea how to teach skill or organize a class for effective teaching. We both agreed that in this case it would be good to turn back the clock and teach PE teachers how to teach.
