Welcome to episode 165 of The PE Umbrella Podcast!
This week I am joined by Primary PE teacher at a SEND school Evelyn Roberts. Evelyn was born with Cerebral Palsy, a condition that impacts her muscles, in particular making it difficult for her to walk. In this episode, Evelyn takes us on a journey through her negative childhood experiences of PE into ultimately playing professional sport and now teaching PE herself. She opens up about her struggles and successes and ultimately how her condition positively impacts on all of the students she teaches. Not only were my eyes opened further, but I was truly inspired.
As well as that, we also take a trip down the regular show questions, seeking to draw out knowledge bombs from Evelyn, particularly centred around her role working in a SEND school. This means you can expect answers to questions such as:
- What currently excites you about PE?
- What misconceptions about our subject should be banished to room 101?
- What is your ideal PE lesson recipe?
- What is your worst ever PE lesson and what did you learn from it?
So what are you waiting for? Jump under the umbrella with us and join in the conversation by tweeting me @thepeumbrella. Note pad ready!
