Pablo's insight:

Education is very important for students in high school. A lot of the students do not really care or set goals because they are on their own different programs just trying to graduate high school. Part of my job as a gym teacher will be to talk about the importance of education and getting into a good school and becoming successful. Many people have different views on what successful is but as long as you are not struggling in life and you seem pretty comfortable with where you are, you are successful. 4 year universities can be tough to get into straight from high school but as long as students are meeting the requirements for admission they will be buying themselves a ticket into the universities they wish to attend. In the end, life is all about meeting requirements and deadlines so if high school students get in the mindset of fulfilling requirements by a certain time they will make themselves that much stronger to face the realities of life.

Pablo's insight:

There is a lot more to being a gym teacher than just making the students run around for the 45 minute class. Becoming a gym teacher will require me to educate my students on the importance of good nutrition and regular exercise throughout their lives. A lot of individuals grow up on very poor diets for a lot of different reasons and one of the big reasons is a lack in education on nutrition. Another reason why people have bad diets is because they can only afford to buy the cheaper brands that are not as healthy as a brand that would be higher in price. Also, regular exercise throughout life is very important because being active on a regular basis will protect you against a lot of unhealthy conditions and diseases.

Pablo's insight:

Going into teaching gym is going to be very rewarding. Although it is a career that is slowly being shut down due to budget cuts I will continue to go after my goal because it is what I want to do. However, I will have a back up and get my degree to become and English teacher as well to make myself even more presentable when I start applying to schools. What I love about being a gym teacher is that I get to go to work in very comfortable athletic gear and still look professional to instruct gym classes.

Success in sports and academics - YouTube

Try to keep up with the four-year Fighting Illini starting center Ryan McDonald as he juggles the demands of football and academics.
Pablo's insight:

Time management is very important for coaches and athletes. When I start teaching gym at the high school level, my primary duty will be getting my class in shape and meeting standards. However, I will regularly talk about how time management is in order to be successful in life because as my students get older and eventually graduate high school there are not going to be teachers and counselors to counsel them on how they should be managing their time. And for the athletes that I will be coaching after school, I will get them in the mindset that grades are more important than the sport they play.

Pablo's insight:

Having great character goes a long way in an individual's life. Having the courage to do the right thing is not always easy but it is always best to do the right thing. Playing a sport should not always be about winning because in the end there is only one winner and there is a lot more to sports than just winning.

Safer sex education

Safer sex education | Character counts | Scoop.it
Pablo's insight:

As teenagers grow older their hormones naturally make them want to be sexually active. As high school students graduate and go into college, sex is going to be a big part of their lives because they become into young adults in charge of their own lives and sex is a big part of being a young adult. As a gym teacher, I will teach my students about the importance of safe sex because people can reduce their life expectancy by not practicing safe sex. Condoms are handed out at high schools all the time at no charge but students never take them for a lot of different reasons and I will try my best to make sure that my students know why it is very important to always have protection on them when going out. A lot of pregnancies occur because both parties want to participate in sex and their is no condom present and they do it anyways and try to pull out or other techniques that do not work.

California Commission on Teacher Credentialing

California Commission on Teacher Credentialing | Character counts | Scoop.it
The purpose of the Commission is to inspire, educate and protect the students of California. Vist CTC for your Teaching Credential, Credential Requirements, Approved Programs, or to Search for a teacher
Pablo's insight:

In order to be eligible to teach in the state of California I will be required to attain a state credential. A state credential is basically a license to teach. Losing my credential will cause me my teaching career which shows how strict California is with people becoming teachers. Most states in this country do not require a credential to teach and all you need is a 4-year degree in the subject you are looking into teaching. To teach in California I will also be required to teach as a volunteer while being observed to basically see if I have what it takes to carry the responsibility of leading young individuals in a gym class.

One of the BEST Motivational Videos I've ever seen! - YouTube

Pablo's insight:

Part of being a gym teacher is seeing students coming and go as they arrive as freshmen to the school and graduate as seniors. Like the saying goes, life is a roller coaster and people will fall hard by the ways of life and that is for certain. On a daily basis, I will say things to motivate my students and athletes on pushing forward no matter what gets in their way because nothing will be handed to them for high school and that is a promise. Many university students drop out to continue their education at a local community college for different reasons but they are not quitting because they are still fighting and going to school.

An unbelievable display of sportsmanship is always refreshing to see - YouTube

Pablo's insight:

Once I start coaching at the high school level, I am going to drill good sportsmanship in the mindset of my athletes. Good sportsmanship is one of the best traits an athlete can posses because it shows that playing fair and winning in an honest manner is what counts. A lot of athletes think it is acceptable to bend the rules and cheat to gain an advantage over the opponent but that is not what my coaching strategies will be about. My coaching approach would be making honest players out of my athletes and making sure they are doing well academically as well.
