Why do you like teaching Skills & Drills?

Skills and drills is meant to get the children moving. I have them stretch and run, we play organized games which helps teach cooperation. They learn to play fairly and engage with other children in a fun and competitive way.

I’m not a sideline teacher, I get in there with them I always play with them, often being flag guarder for Capture The Flag or anchor in the relay races.

Tell us a funny story about something that has happened during class

We share the basketball court with members who are playing basketball.  Often times, I ask them to join us in a game of kickball or cross the ocean. The children LOVE it when the FV Fire Dept. plays with us.
