Welcome to Coach Hill's ClassAs we start off the year, I am reminded that I'm not just an physical educator; I am a mentor, teacher, and role model. My main focus as a physical educator is not primarily to help students develop skills, but to help them become better educated on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle including exercise and nutrition. Just as John Fitzgerald Kennedy states, “Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.” Physical education is important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which helps keeps people happy and energized on a daily basis. Participating in sports, martial arts, dance or aerobics has positive influences on a student’s personality and helps boost their confidence. I will educate students on the importance of physical education, nutrition and hygiene to promote healthy lifestyles in adulthood.
