All About Me!
My name is Dusty Harrison, but I am affectionately called Coach Dusty by the students I teach at Breaux Bridge Elementary. I have been an educator in public schools for the past fifteen years; beginning my career as a first grade teacher and gaining experience in class rooms ranging from first through high school. It was through my experience as a cross-country and track coach that I found my passion for physical education! This is my fifth year as the physical education teacher at Breaux Bridge Elementary.
I am pleased to offer the students at Breaux Bridge Elementary a quality physical education program as part of their curriculum. We will be using activities from the SPARK Physical Education program. SPARK (Sports, Play, and Active Recreation for Kids) is an "Exemplary Program" of the U.S. Department of Education. SPARK PE is a unique program designed to help teachers like me to lead activities that are inclusive, highly active, integrate academic and wellness concepts, and are fun for all students. Instructional units are designed to develop students' motor, cognitive, and social skills. All students will have many opportunities to practice and participate in high levels of moderate to vigorous physical activity.
Rules and Expectations!
Everyone will feel successful each lesson by following the SPARK rules:
S-Support others and be a good sport
P-Participate; give 100%
A-Always think safety
R-Remember to listen and follow directions
K-Kindness given is kindness returned
I believe a strong parent teacher connection is essential to student success. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions, comments, or concerns.I love coaching the tigers of Breaux Bridge Elementary!
