COVID-19 has created many challenges for physical education teachers in a virtual or hybrid setting. This month’s Huddle focuses on those challenges including large class sizes, minimal equipment, securing technology through grant funding, to increasing communication among fellow physical educators. In addition, motivating students in a virtual setting is an ongoing issue that continues to challenge teachers. Join us for a Huddle that will be hands-on and practical and about issues that impact the entire profession.

Thomas Gelardi has been teaching elementary school physical education for over 15 years. His presentations have focused on instant activities, large class sizes, and little or no equipment.

Ross Charian has taught physical education for over 11 years and has been successful in securing local and national grants to bring a variety of technology into his program. Ross was recently recognized as a 2020 SHAPE America Mabel Lee Award winner.
