Background: I recently received two e-mails. One was from a PE teacher in New Jersey and another from a PE teacher in Michigan. Each ended their message with the words – “Keep up the good work!”
And I will!
We met on a couple of occassions when you were in New Jersey. I am the coach of the “Lightning Bolts,” a demonstration jump rope team and teach at a Montessori school.
Perhaps you remember me…
In any event, I have an abridged version of the New Jersey State PE Standards which I have used over the years to check my own physical education program against. It is about 3-4 years old. Is there anything you have done since then which is newer? The one I have is good enough. I just wanted to be up-to-date as I am speaking at an America Montessori Conference in New Orleans about “Why PE?” and our school’s physical education curriculum.
I may use your document with your name attached, of course. I hope that is okay. I have received permission to use it before from someone in your office.
Thanks Artie. Hope you are well. Keep up the good work!
Would it be possible to email your activities and blog to my home address in addition to my school address? I read your materials at work, but would also read and order from my home computer. If this isn’t possible, then would you please email to my home address as I will miss materials during the summer months. Thanks for all the good stuff!
Yours in Physical Education! 42 years and still going strong!
PS: My son Ryan substitutes in the Detroit School System and I told him to call you for your insight into a position in P.E. He doesn’t make a lot of money, so I told him that I would pay for your Great Activities Newspaper subscription. Keep up the good work!
So, how many of you know someone who has been teaching PE for more than 40 years? I have a new hero!
PS: Keep up the good work!
