Friday I was
cornered into subbing for a gym teacher
afforded the unique opportunity to be a guest teacher in a physical education
class. I was terrified a bit
nervous about being outside of my comfort zone.
Luckily, it was a free for all an option day, so I didn’t have to
lead any activities. Instead, I
hovered along the wall watching out for flying balls of doom I walked
around supervising the various games the students decided to play. I found that I had lots of time to avoid
being annihilated reflect. It was
enlightening to see my students run off some of their energy interact in
a completely different setting than the classroom. I wish I had more opportunities to dodge
low flying spherical objects to see my students in a new light.
