John F. Edwards 86 SUNY Cortland alumnus was a little over the top and very energetic. John made some fantastic points about communication and to me had some extremely memorable quotes that i fell can directly relate to P.E. "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care". Think about that for a minute. How true that statement is. How relevant that is to teaching. Communication is, in my opinion as well as Mr. Edwards, a dying art. We are so into this internet, cellular based society. As a P.E. major i would like to see this change because of obesity epidemic. Instead of talking on the cellphone, or the computer go out and meet your friends and do some form of activity any form from team sports to DDR (Dance Dance Revolution). Everyone should be an "expert of communication" but as teachers we need to have this lost art mastered. SPMT study, practice, master, teach Lets become better communicators.
