I am passionate about building a welcoming and friendly environment and even more passionate about teaching physical education to make it an enjoyable hobby in and out of the classroom.
      ~ Brent McEwen,   Indiana State University

I want to become a physical education teacher because I know the importance of being physically active. I knew being active was something that benefitted me, and I want nothing more than for student to experience that too.
      ~ Sarah McWeeney,   Ball State University

My goal is to develop relationships with people and truly find out what they need when it comes to their individual health journey and then take the necessary steps required to put that individual on a path to success. This will look different from one person to the next, but my job as a fitness coach is to do my best to bring the truth to the forefront and work through the emotional side of individuals and their health and performance journeys."
      ~ Norman Miller,   Butler University

After graduating, I plan to stay current on new research within the field to best help the athletes. I want to continue to grow in my knowledge of athletic training to create the best exercise programs to either help prevent an injury or help aid in the recovery phase.
      ~ Haley Patterson,   Butler University

It is my personal philosophy that physical education should be provided to K-12 students so they can practice an active, healthy lifestyle throughout their entire life including when they graduate.
      ~ Jacob Van Pelt,   Manchester University

I want to make sure I teach not only physical health, but mental, social and emotional health. I want to give the last three dimensions of health just as much attention since they are just as important.
      ~ Zach White,   Manchester University
