As many of you know I am Coach Jones the Two Dimensions PE & Health Instructor. I have been a Physical education and Health educator for 15 years.
Favorite sports – basketball, football, soccer, and baseball
Favorite book– “Salt in His Shoes: Michael Jordan in Pursuit of a Dream” by Deloris Jordan Favorite hobby – reading, and spending time with my family
Professional goal – inspire students’ love for physical movement and wellness
Personal goal – never stop learning and affecting positive changes in others
Our goal in physical education is for everyone to learn to make healthy choices and feel successful when participating in a variety of activities. This enables students to develop a positive attitude toward physical activity and to develop healthy habits, which will enhance their lives.
Students will be encouraged to have fun and enjoy PE. They will also be encouraged to participate to the best of their ability in all activities. At the elementary level, certain skills are taught so that students will be able to pursue competitive sports as well as lifetime sports.
Basic introductory skills for the following activities will be taught: 1)circle, line, and relay games; 2) fitness activities including the state mandated FITNESSGRAM fitness test in third, fourth and fifth graders; 3) jump rope; 4) organized games and activities
