I enjoy all things sports! I hope to pass on a love of activity to all my students so they will lead a healthy life. In order to stay connected to the students I teach, I have started this blog to encourage conversations about what they like and dislike about their P.E. classes.
Being able to get out and walk, run, bike, skate, etc. is one of my favorite parts of Summer. On my walk yesterday I had the misfortune of disturbing a 3 ft. long Rattle Snake! Although both my dog and I came out of the encounter just fine ( as did the snake ) it could have been a different outcome. It was at that point that I realized I did not even have my cell phone with me. I was on a rather isolated part of the pathway, and help would have been a long way off.
Lesson learned: take a phone, or make sure you are close enough to civilization to get immediate help if you need it!
Get out there and be active: just remember to be safe.....
Summer fun brings new risks for kids. Pools and beaches are very dangerous places for anyone who does not know how to swim. It is important that kids are taught to swim, and well supervised anytime they are around water. No one should ever swim alone!
Beaches also bring added dangers like sharks, sting rays, and strong currents. Life jackets are a must on any boat!
