I am passionate about Physical Education and its importance in supporting the development of an active, healthy lifestyle which furthers a student’s life chances. Physical Education is more important today than it has ever been, in my opinion. It is a privilege to be able to play a key role in developing the next generation of Physical Education teachers, who can inform and inspire our youngsters to participate in and value physical activity.
