I want to inspire students to say “Because of you, I didn’t give up.” Elise Adams Physical Education Student Teacher Hi, my name is Elise Adams. I am a student teacher from Arizona State University in the Physical Education program. I am honored to have the opportunity to learn from DeJuan Sanders this spring. I will be teaching every day for the first half of the school day. I am very excited to get to know the students at Taft Elementary School. I am a yoga teacher, a runner, and I love to hike, mountain bike, and dance (especially with my two young daughters). I decided to become a Physical Education teacher because I want to teach children that being active should be a life-long habit to bring health and happiness. With these skills that I will be teaching your children, they will develop strong, healthy bodies and minds, as well as finding exciting, new activities they will love.
