I present on behind the scenes of education through the eyes of a physical educator. I have been an itinerant Adapted PE teacher (special Ed) and general Ed PE. I have taught classes as large as 180. I have worked in many schools, dealt with good and not so good principals and teachers. I have provided professional develop for years and all over the country on quality physical education. I give a perspective as an award winning PE teacher in the most devalued subject in the curriculum. I have participated in IEPS as a specialist as well as a parent of a child with an invisalble disability (mental illness) I have had to be an advocate for my son which includes a federal lawsuit.
