Dear Parents,

My name is Yaritza Santiago, Physical Education teacher and I am really glad to welcome you and your child to my classroom this year. I am looking forward to an exciting year. I am prepared to evaluate the students who functioned below- on, and above grade level. As result, I am a person who evaluates each student’s unique needs before perform my lesson plans. Additional, I utilize different methods and teaching techniques to ensure that each student is able to understand the objective of the activity, enhance their own personal skills, enjoy the activity, and socialize with other students. I inspire students learning integrates with the fun sports, games, and activities that emphasize health and fitness.

My strengths are the dedication to my work, patience with all behaviors, and a strong sense of organization. Also, keeping students motivated and participating in the physical activity.
