Why I Want to Become a Teacher

Jake discussing proper technique of the overhead pass with students.

Being a health and physical education teacher means being in the prime position to help shape children into well-rounded individuals, who are conscious of the positive effects that physical activity has on their lives.  This is where my desire to become a health and physical education teacher comes into play. I personally know what it feels like to want to live a healthy lifestyle, while lacking the knowledge of how to do so.  To do this effectively, one does not teach how to become a healthier individual by rolling out a ball and watching.  Teaching effectively is an active process, which involves developing relationships with students while reinforcing healthy habits that will last a lifetime.  I envision myself leading by example; actively participating in the development of the child’s skills and knowledge needed to live a healthy lifestyle.
