“Putting yourself out there for constructive critique is so rewarding…”
Welcome to episode 88 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 not by Physical Education teacher Dan Popescu.
During this special episode we talk about the worst moment in Dan’s teaching to date and how he bounced back and learned from that failure. Don’t worry, we talk about the happy times too as Dan elaborates on his greatest teaching moment and what he took from it. On top of this he shares his top class management tips, favourite warm up games and how he goes about planning a unit of work.
