“Some kids face resistance to being taught, so our goal is to be like magicians and change the way we deliver the magic. With those kids, there is a way in and we need to find it.”
Welcome to episode 91 of The PE Umbrella Podcast, and as always thank you for giving up your time to join me on the ONLY Primary and Elementary Physical Education Podcast in the world! In this episode I am joined by Aussie Physical Education legend and now repeat guest of the show, Andy Hair.
If you missed Andy the first time around then you missed an absolute cracker of an episode so make sure you go and check out that episode by following this link (Andy Hair | Dream, Believe, Achieve)
In this bumper episode I had the opportunity to dive even deeper, unpicking some of his absolute top tips for engaging the disengaged students, building solid relationships and even had Andy story telling, sharing his absolute worst and best moments from throughout his teaching career! At over an hour long, there is some absolute gold from Andy and things you can take away and try immediately. The discussions between the main questions are absolute gold and Andy made it so easy to explore many avenues with the questions!
