Personal Statement

Information About Winter '22 Quarter

HEA150 Health and Human Sexuality
Both HEA150 Health and Human Sexuality sections are traditionally online classes: there are no Zoom meetings, and all class work (readings, weekly and biweekly homework, biweekly quizzes, one project, and two exams) are online, and to be submitted via Canvas. There is no textbook. HEA150 is a "survey" course, which means content is more general and broad in scope. Topics we will cover include behavior change, personality, cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, physical activity, tobacco, alcohol, other psychoactive substances, basic reproductive physiology, contraception, sexually transmitted infections, and aging. A link to the current quarter's reading and homework can be found here.

PEC199 Independent Fitness
In Independent Fitness, we will meet approximately 10 times via Zoom, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12-12:50pm. If you cannot attend on a particular day, you can still earn credit by participating in and briefly summarizing the Zoom recording, which I upload later the same day. Students will be reflecting on their health- and fitness-related goals, and creating their own individualized programs based on information shared in the class. Zoom sessions will be a mix of physical activity and lecture/discussion/question & answer. Outside of class students will be participating in and documenting physical activity they complete on their own schedules. Besides the weekly participation documentation, homework includes three quizzes, goal documentation, training heart rate worksheet, and goal reflection. There is no textbook.

PEC165 Body Conditioning
We will meet in person in the campus Roy Flores Wellness Center on MWF, 11-11:50am. If you are unable to attend in person but still wish to participate, you can do so via Zoom. If you cannot participate in person or via Zoom on a particular day, you can still earn credit by participating in and briefly summarizing the Zoom recording, which I will upload later the same day. Body Conditioning aims to improve our muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility, though fun is also a goal. The College has hand-held weights and some other equipment we will be using. For anyone participating in the class via Zoom, you can participate without equipment, but if you have hand-held weights or full water bottles (or wear a backpack with one or more books inside), you can add a level of challenge. All students should wear comfortable-fitting athletic shoes and clothing that allows the body's joints to move through their full ranges of motion. There is no textbook.

 

As a Physical Education and Health instructor, I assist students with their proactive efforts to improve wellness. I fully support an individual's decision and steps to positively change health and wellness, and wish for that person to find inspiration to continue participating in physical activity beyond the classroom.
