This week for the Featured PE Teacher section on the PE Central Facebook page, the spotlight is on Victoria Turner!


victoria turner grantAbout Victoria Turner:

I am a Physical Education teacher at Oakridge Elementary School in Hollywood, FL. I teach 480 students in grades PreK-5th. I have been teaching for 4 years.

Current Lesson Plan/Unit:

My PreK students are part of the ASD program in Broward County, and we typically do a lot of dance. Right now we are working on the Chinese Ribbon Dance as part of the Spring Concert. K-2 is working on Kicking and Trapping. I am also incorporating one of Character Traits, which is Control. We talk about how in soccer you need to have control over the ball and we relate it back to how you need control in the classroom. Grades 3-5 are working on Frisbee. Also, since we are just finishing up math testing I incorporated math into their lesson plans. We worked with throwing at different angles, and playing Frisbee math golf where each “hole” was worth different points based on a bath equation that was provided at each “hole”.
