As I will be a physical education teacher for the school now, I am taking a good look at what the students have available to them as far as equipment goes. I have a great deal of construction experience so, in the coming month, I'm hoping to install the following for school use:
An indoor rock climbing wall
A large trampoline
Two kid-friendly obstacle courses, one for children under 10 and one for teenagers
I haven't gotten actual permission on these yet so if there are concerns or questions, feel free to ask now. There will be a long list of safety measures in place and the risk of injury will be as minimal as most standard P.E. activities and sports involve.
Use of the equipment will not be mandatory. I feel everyone has different needs as far as physical education. Ideally, tools should be used to help students reach a healthy place that suits them and keeps them engaged, instead of wishing they were literally anywhere else. Since we have some flexibility for one-on-one learning here, I'll be adjusting everyone's curriculum on an individual basis. With any luck, I can keep at least three-quarters of the class from hating me.
