Physical Education Initial Certification: Extended Learning Opportunities
Physical education teacher education (PETE) majors receive extensive field experiences prior to student teaching. This provides teacher candidates with authentic opportunties to engage in a classroom setting. Student teaching experiences culminate with workshops in multicultural education, violence prevention, drug and alcohol awareness, resume and job search techniques and preparation for the New York State Teacher's Exam.
The Phys Ed Majors Club members attend and present model classes at state and national conferences and workshops. They also bring in guest speakers and volunteer at local community events and service agencies.
