- The Annual Physical Education Workshop: The Department hosts an annual Physical Education Workshop featuring a nationally
accomplished Physical Education Teacher as its facilitator every second week of October.
The participants are drawn from Physical Education Teachers and Coaches in Upper East
Texas; and PE Teacher Trainees from local Colleges and Universities. The workshop
features a stimulating assortment of fun-packed, educational games and ideas not only
focusing on participation and involvement for the large class, but that intrigue,
engage, and motivate students. The presentations provide all inclusive, fun activities,
which in turn minimize discipline problems and maximize participation. All activities
are hands-on and every participant is actively engaged. At the end of the workshop,
certificates are awarded to the successful participants. For more information contact:
Dr. Wycliffe W. Njororai Simiyu, 903-565-5530; firstname.lastname@example.org or Judy Stanley, JStanley@uttyler.edu.
