I began teaching in higher education in 2004, after spending eight years teaching K–12 physical education and health in a variety of public school settings. I am passionate about the value of physical education on student learning, self-esteem, and overall health and wellness. My dissertation, “The Impact of Content Integration in Physical Education on Student Academic Achievement,” has provided evidence that quality integrated learning experience in physical education can have an impact on student academic achievement. It is my hope to help future physical educators develop their teaching skills in order to prepare them to create and develop quality physical education programs for all students.
