     "To be of sound mind and sound body" could be a mantra for everyone.
    Teaching Health Education to my students is always a challenge and fun to boot as my charges have questions and opinions and creative thoughts about what being healthy means.
    The art of teaching requires intelligence, organization, acting, coaching, patience, mentoring, and genuine caring for
    students.
    I believe I bring all these assets to my teaching .
     
    The future for my students will demand of them the ability to think critically, to take responsibility for their choices, to
    be able to discern what course of action will most benefit them but may or will require sacrifice and discipline.
