· Head Coach for CYO Basketball 11/13-02/14

· Assistant Coach for Union-Endicott Track Team 11/13-02/14
While assisting the track team at two levels, I was asked to perform many different tasks. The modified level had a focus of improvement and fun. I helped the distance runners improve their times throughout the course of a season by creating effective workouts that would help build speed and endurance. At the varsity level I was asked to focus on the form of the runners. Improvement was also a key factor while the level of performance was more competitive.
· Assistant Coach for Union Endicott Soccer Team 08/13-11/13
While assisting the boys soccer team I helped create drills and small sided games. This helped improve the athlete’s awareness on the field. I also helped keep track of statistics such as time played, goals, assists and saves. Assisting the coach helped me see the details a coach has to be aware of; such as relaying information to parents, when to start pre season and even when start specific drills at a specific part of the season.
· Counselor for Boys and Girls Club Summer Fun Program 06/13-08/13
The summer fun program for the club was a “drop in” program. This meant the number of students varied each day. We ranged between thirty and seventy students daily. The students were from all different backgrounds and all different ages (5-12). Some students spoke English as a second language and some were in high needs schools. This gave me the chance to observe and teach different learning styles and ability. Children who are seven years old are at an entirely different level than a twelve year old. Modifying physical activities to be appropriate for all of the age groups was an exciting challenge that I welcomed. I also lifeguard for the club, my duties include teaching swimming lessons to students who sign up for 6 week programs. Lessons are given on Saturdays and offer a great learning experience for swimmers of all levels.
· Student Teaching at Union-Endicott School District 01/13-03/13
At Union-Endicott, I had the chance to work with students at the elementary level. I tried to focus on practicing my management skills as much as possible during this time. Students seemed to appreciate structure and that is what I tried to provide to them. Management skills can help keep students on task and even help improve student’s ability to learn. I also assessed student’s psychomotor abilities with the TGMD2 form. While I was at Union-Endicott, I assessed student learning during a cup stacking unit and a healthy heart unit. Both of which, student’s improved their cognitive and psychomotor skills.
· Observational Hours for Adapted Physical Education 11/12
At SUNY Cortland we took a class which gave us the opportunity to work with all ages of students who have disabilities. The disabilities ranged from Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome and Autism. I worked with a one and a half year old who was just beginning his Physical Education experience. Working with such a young age required me to change my teaching strategies, specifically my approach methods. Lastly I developed an Individualized Education Plan for this student which will be with him for the rest of his educational career.
