The bird’s eye view is an amazing view to have. From this view you can see a lot more than if you were close up and personal. In other words, you can see the whole story not just the little place you are in.I want to give you a glimpse into my bird’s eye view. The “why” behind the creation of this website and blog.
I want to show you the big picture!
For years I wanted to be the best physical education teacher that I could be. I thought I was, but after reading physical education articles, talking with other physical educators, going to conferences, listening to podcasts, and collaborating on Twitter. I realized that I had a lot of work to do. This was just the start.
You see I used to be an “old school” teacher. The main problem wasn’t that I was an “old school” teacher. The main problem was I didn’t know that I was. No ever told me I was just scratching the surface of what it meant to be a physical educator.
I thought to myself, “If I didn’t realize that what I was doing wasn’t that great, then there are probably others in the same situation”!
My goal with this website and blog is to encourage and resource other physical educators. If it reaches someone that is already doing a great job I will appreciate it, but the main purpose is to reach those who are in the situation I used to be in. I want this to be out there in the interwebs just waiting to be found by someone who is trying to be better than they are right now.
I’m not, only, just going to wait around to be found I am going to try my best to find those like the old me.
I am going to mentor and pour into those who truly need and want guidance!
