If you are looking for the best in live music, visit Austin, Texas. If you are looking for best and liveliest teachers in Texas, you could have found them at the TAHPERD (Texas Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance) Summer Conference on July 26 and 27th. The conference was held at Akins High School in Austin, Texas.
Over 800 teachers attended the conference. Texas Bicycle Coalition was present with Brenda Chuleewah, Fernando Martinez and Wini Hunton-Chan providing bicycle safety information to the teachers. Many PE teachers are interested in teaching bicycle safety to their students. Texas Bicycle Coalition offers FREE Texas SuperCyclist Certification Training to PE teachers and youth community workers.
During the conference, Brenda Chuleewah, Texas Bicycle Coalition’s Teacher Training Manager, presented SuperCyclist! SuperFun! The teachers were able to play some of the games available in the SuperCyclist Curriculum. They enjoyed teaching each other the 7 Texas Laws by creating a way to show their law with a simple physical action (like Charades). They also played the Bicycle Hang Tag Game, an active relay game that teaches the students the parts of a bicycle. The teacher also learned how to do a Helmet Egg Drop Demo. This is a fun way to teach the importance of wearing a helmet that students enjoy and remember.
Thanks to these dedicated teachers, our children will be encouraged to lead active, healthy lives and also learn to do it safely!
