Introduction to P.E. (1st-3rd)
This class will get 1st-3rd grade students moving! We will play active games and learn the importance of physical activity for our bodies. Students will practice important movement and coordination skills, including dynamic activities such as running, jumping, obstacles courses, team-based games, and exercises to improve fitness. The class will also practice controlling body movement through static activities requiring balance and muscle awareness, such as “freeze” or “statue” games and exercises that require holding a pose for a period of time. The games and activities in this class will allow students to practice following directions and participating as part of a team. A perfect afternoon class for younger students, this class will be fun, exciting and active!

ABOUT THE TEACHER
B.S. Health & Sports
K-12 Teaching Certificate in Health & Physical Education
Tasha is a former colligate athlete who grew up in the Sunshine State, Florida. She discovered her love of sports which opened up an opportunity for her to earn a full scholarship to the University of Richmond where she met her husband Randy, a former football player. While there, she earned her B.S in Health and Sport Science which led her to complete her teaching certification in K-12 Health and PE education. She taught in the public school system for 17 years before leaving to homeschool her two children. Tasha's teaching style is very high energy which creates a very engaging and lively environment. In her free time, she enjoys learning "the ways of old" such as gardening, food preservation including fermenting and the not-so-scary world of pressure canning.
Tasha is grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Bridge Academy family and looks forward to teaching in a Christ-centered environment.
