Past PE Teachers

In elementary school I had a female physical education teacher who was a fairly good teacher.  She has a lot of exercises to teach basic motor skills, but she made them seem like exercises~ not games.  PE for me as a child involved a lot of moving, but not a lot of fun.  I think that it is important to infuse creativity and fun into PE lessons so that kids get a good impression of physical activity and want to keep doing it.  In middle and high school we played games, but did very little skill and tactical development.  We jumped right into game play with little preparation.  Middle and high school levels of PE should be focused on specific skill development and tactical aspects of the game.  If my teachers would have taught us specific skills, and some tactical drills game play would have been much more fun, and much more beneficial.
