In Motor Development we were assigned to present a chapter in our text book to the rest of the class in a fun and creative way. Instead of the typical boring lecture that most classes consist of in college, we aimed to entertain the class while giving them important information from the chapter. We also hoped to get a few laughs out of our peers and Dr. Yang at 8:30 in the morning. Group mates: Mindy (Dr. Feelgood), Bart (Baby Suzie), Efrain (Mr. Whipple) and I (Mrs. Whipple) prepared a short skit called a Day at the Dr.'s and remixed the popular song "Push It" by Salt and Pepper. Hope you enjoy.

My name is Julie Frohm and this is my first semester at SUNY Cortland. I studied physical education for the past two years at Finger Lakes Community College and earned my associates degree there. I was very excited and honored to received a spot in the physical education department at this college. In Dr. Yang's 201 Motor Development class we have been visiting St. Mary's school and working with the children there, playing games and assessing their motor skills. This has been a very new and exciting experience for me. I have not worked with children this young before, ranging from pre-k to 2nd grade. In the past I have helped coach 3rd through 6th grade girls basketball, high school girls basketball, and 8th grade boys basketball. Working with the St. Mary's students has helped prepare me for my future teaching career in this field and the rest of my experiences at SUNY Cortland.
