Teaching Area(s): Physical Education

I prefer to teach using the active learning method. Active learning provides hands-on application activities to cover course content instead of lecturing.

Testimonials from Physical Education Majors

"The physical education and health staff here at Mount Union is extraordinary.  All staff members here on campus are eager to help and available in a moments notice through email, office hours and even phone conversations.  During my experience, the faculty has helped me gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the career I will pursue after graduation.  As I look back on the information and guidance I was given, I am excited to move forward into a rewarding career and use the knowledge that I have obtained.  I have enjoyed my experience here at Mount Union and am glad I decided to become a Purple Raider."

"The professors are outstanding! They really help you to learn a lot of activities and games that you could one day teach. They truly prepare you for graduation and your career afterwards."
-Cassie Kovarik

"In the health and physical education majors I know I can go to class each and every day to be greeted by enthusiastic and smiling professionals who are ready to enhance my learning. Being able to be comfortable to talk to my professors has helped me progress through these past three years and I can truly say I have learned from the best! If I ever have a question or need a resource for a lesson I am teaching, the professors are always available to guide the way for me."
-Dana Forgione

"Coming through the physical education and health program has made me very confident about entering into a teaching and coaching career.  The courses of study encompass every imaginable aspect within the content area: from coaching specific sports, to understanding the workings of the human body, to creating coordinated school health programs.  The professors create a climate of high expectations, yet are accommodating to the needs of the individual student.  In addition, recent renovations to the MAAC offer a premiere environment for learning.  If an incoming freshmen values fitness and wants to make a difference, I would greatly recommend becoming a physical education and health major."
-Ehrich Zollinger

"The health and physical education majors give you the tools to promote lifelong wellness. Both majors have a variety of classes that allow you to develop as an educator. The classes are designed to use a variety of teaching methods to fit the strengths of all students. The professors go above and beyond to help students build on their professional development."
