A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

"To connect, to engage, and to create unforgettable experiences — these are the three qualities of every great teacher on the planet."
– Steve Spangler

These words express the very values I strove to embrace in my role as a PE teacher and will be at the core of this seminar. It's been my experience that when we truly understand the immense positive impact we can have on the lives of our students that we have a greater appreciation for our roles as physical educators that extend far beyond the next game or skill we introduce.

During the highly practical seminar I will share dozens of fun, cooperative, fitness oriented activities that your students will love. We will focus on team building, collaboration, rainy day options, objection manipulation, authentic assessment and dance. Also included in my seminar are proven management tips that especially apply to the physical education setting helping to motivate students to do their best and decrease inappropriate behavior.

Please join your colleagues and me for a day full of impactful lessons that can greatly increase your student's engagement and success in physical education! Whether your PE instruction is in-person, online or in a hybrid learning environment, you'll leave with numerous ideas to enhance your PE instruction.

Sincerely,
Pat Vickroy

P.S. You'll walk away from this seminar inspired, motivated and prepared to use these strategies and activities tomorrow!
