A quality physical education program is an important component in the total education of students. With the increasing sedentary lives of today's children, it is of the utmost importance that children are receiving a well-rounded physical education program as part of their school curriculum. As a physical educator, I believe that my primary responsibility is to provide a wide variety of opportunities for students to be active, to play games, cooperate, demonstrate positive sportsmanship, learn the importance of all the components of fitness, and create a love for physical activity so they will enter into their adult lives with the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to enjoy a physically active and healthy lifestyle.
