Health and Physical Education is a collaborative fusion of the body and the mind. My perception of education is primarily focused on identifying the various ways we can influence our bodies and mind to establish habituation of positive and health conscious decision making and problem solving skills. Health and Physical Education is an arena that students are taught how positive self care influences the creation of a strong foundation for a healthy learner. I advocate the belief that these disciplines are teaching environments in which instructors can help students take control of their total wellness. This gives our students the tools to become more efficient learners. Education of positive health oriented decision making provides the student with the reasoning and rationale to become a physically healthier individual. My goal is that our students here at Ridgway Middle School use this knowledge as they progress in all areas of learning.
