Summary

I am currently seeking a teaching position in Elementary, Junior High or High School Physical Education.  I love being around kids of all ages and being a role model for students in all grade levels. I particularly take interest in the students who are not necessarily "great students," and struggle in areas like academics or socialization. I like to create a relationship with my students and make them feel important. I believe that self-confidence and self-esteem are two of the biggest factors for all students to achieve success. As a PE teacher I have an ability to interact with the students in a different setting than the normal classroom school setting. This allows me to find different areas of success and spark 

Objective

I am a sincere, loyal and dedicated individual who has a great deal of ambition. My objective is to utilize the skills I have obtained to complete my job with the utmost level of professionalism and efficiency. I am seeking a position where I can develop and excel while giving my best to an employer. I will not only complete the duties I am given, I will go above and beyond them.
