 Blog

Hello all ,

 I am sharing the link below with you, so that you can see the “blog” posting that our PETE major – Krystyna Freda – just wrote about becoming a physical education teacher and its importance to her. I am so very proud to share this with you all – other PETE majors, mentor teachers, and administrators. She expresses her feelings about the value of physical education, and how difficult it is to go through the process of becoming a teacher. Way to go, Krystyna! Please visit the site, and click “Like” and make comments as much as you can… thanks, Dr. Davis
