A series about learning tennis as an Open Skill rather then the traditional approach of teaching it as a closed skill.

We're Physical Educators, just like you.

A few years back, we were growing frustrated with how people would react when we'd tell them that we taught Physical Education. "Oh, you're a gym teacher" or "How hard can it be to teach dodgeball?" was usually what they would say. And who can blame them? Historically, Physical Educators have been stereotyped as teachers who love to coast: they wouldn't lesson plan, only give good grades to the super athletes, look sloppy at work, etc.

But that's not the case with us and, if you're reading this, its probably not the case with you either. We know that there are amazing Physical Educators out there who are doing everything they can to keep their students engage in their learning. We know that there are Physical Educators who take pride in their work, who work overtime to find new ways to grow as professionals, and who are looking to get rid of that "gym" teacher stereotype once and for all.

If you are one of those teachers, then this site is for you.
