Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I am a Professor teaching primarily in Physical Education teacher education programs in the Department of Exercise Science, Health Studies, Physical Education and Sport Management. I specialize in teacher and curriculum development in physical education including learning standards, assessment and accountability in physical education and teacher education; alternative physical education, sport and physical activity instructional/curriculum approaches, and pedagogy for children and youth in a variety of urban and suburban school settings. I am involved in preparing pre-service and in-service physical education professionals for current and future positions in schools and communities, and in research and development for physical education and physical activity planning, instruction and policy. Recent projects include research on comprehensive school physical activity programs, especially in urban settings, teacher evaluation and accountability programs such as APPR, positive teaching practices for overweight students in physical activity settings; teaching for personal and social responsibility through sport and activity; engaging adolescents in physical activity, and initiating and sustaining new programs in secondary physical education. I live in New York City.
