I am new to Beaumont Independent School District. I wanted to come here and make a difference and I did! I took Physical Education to another level. I teach Hip Hop PE where I play the appropriate music that the kids love so that they will want to come to PE. I engage the kids in games that they have never played before. I have encouraged the kids to eat more salads, more veggies, more fruit and less junk food. The kids have developed a liking for more dairy and grains as well. I am proud to say that several of our students are reading more, studying more and their behavior in the classroom has been exceptionally good. Teachers and administrators are loving the change in the kids. I am so proud to say that I made a HUGE difference at Blanchette Elementary School in Beaumont Texas and I know its because I CARE for the health of the kids and the staff as well.

How did you accomplish your goals?

I remained consistent and developed a close relationship with the kids so that they will believe in me enough to follow my lead.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Keep a close check on the students while in the cafeteria and in the entire school environment.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The greatest challenge was getting to know what the kids need and what they are used to. Sometimes bad habits are hard to break.
