I've been a classroom teacher for 6 years in the Portland area. I know physical education is extremely important to keep kids healthy, reduce obesity, and allow kids to stay focused.
However, I do not believe it takes a certified teacher to teach physical education. PE teachers could be trained classified personnel who have a passion for getting kids engaged in fitness, wellness, and fun. The same lifelong skills could be taught by an individual without a 4 year or even a masters degree. I know this idea is controversial, but several of my colleagues have voiced the same idea. I know we're faced with difficult decisions to make and I wish Oregon would restructure its funding sources
