This weeks Gregg Young Education Award Winner is a real sport, literally.
Teresa Garcia is the Physical Education Teacher at King Science and Technology Magnet and she incorporates technology into her students’ physical fitness training and testing.
Teresa encourages her students to stay active and develops positive relationships in her classes.
Teresa Garcia says, “Some of the challenges we face here in middle school are the kids wanting to stay home, inside, and play video games and hang out and watch T.V. We get them interested in different activities that they can get outside and be active so we try and use the technology out there whether it is iPods, the Wii games and tie the technology into being physically active.”
Teresa also uses great teaching strategies in her classes and continues to go the extra mile everyday at King Science.
