Personal Statement

Information About Summer '24 and Fall '24 Quarter Classes

Summer 2024

HEA150 Health and Human Sexuality (Fully Online)   
HEA150 Health and Human Sexuality is traditionally fully online: 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 hereI look forward to working with you all!

 

 

Fall 2024

PEC136 Yoga (Hybrid and Hyflex = option of in-person or virtual via Zoom or asynchronous via Zoom recording)

Students attend in person or via Zoom, MW 9-9:50am. If unable to participate on a particular day, students can earn credit by participating in and briefly summarizing the Zoom recording, which I upload after each session. In-person students: please bring a yoga mat if you have one, but it’s not required. Virtual students: you’ll need at least a 6x6 space to move, stand, sit, and lie down comfortably. A yoga mat will be helpful, and you may want a towel/blanket for support in some activities. All students, please wear loose-fitting, non-restrictive clothing. Namaste.

PEC139 Yoga Pilates (Hyflex = we option of in-person or virtual via Zoom or asynchronous via Zoom recording, Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 11-11:50am)

Students can attend in person or via Zoom, MWF 11-11:50am. If students cannot participate on a particular day, they can still earn credit by participating in and briefly summarizing the Zoom recording, which I upload after each class session. In-person students: please bring a yoga mat if you have one, but it’s not required. Virtual students: you will need at least a 6’ x 6’ space so you can move, stand, sit, and lie down comfortably, and you may want a towel or blanket to help with support in some activities. All students, please wear loose-fitting, non-restrictive clothing. We will be working without shoes and socks. Let’s get moving!

INTS 100 Integrated Studies

Theme – “Living Your Best Life: Connecting the Mind, Body, and Behavior”

I’m excited to co-teach my first Coordinated Studies class with pro Melissa Grinley. We meet with students on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10am-12:50pm. Students will choose two courses from the four available. Selecting either PSYC&100 General Psychology or PSYC109 Positive Psychology (Melissa’s classes) will meet the “Individuals, Cultures & Societies” AA degree requirement. Choosing either HEA150 Health & Human Sexuality or HEA180 Women’s Health Issues (my classes) will meet the “Natural World” AA degree requirement. We will combine evidence-based practices with what we know about physical and mental/emotional health to support our growth and resilience. Plan on learning more about yourself through in-class and out-of-class work. We will also be sharing perspectives to appreciate similar and different ways of thinking about issues that affect us all.

 

 

My Teaching Philosophy

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.
