What is the best part about being a gym teacher at BHS?

Mr. Buck:

“It’s the best job in the school. Being a gym teacher in general is awesome, because everybody knows PE is the best class in the school. Some people might disagree, but, whatever. You get to be in a gym all day, you get to be around athletics, and it kinda levels the playing field as far as academics goes, and you get to earn a grade for it.”

“As a lifetime athlete and competitor, PE is fun. It’s an enjoyable class.”

Mr. Reed:

“Working with the students in an informal setting, so not a classroom setting. You get to be more open and free and get to know them.”

What sport is your favorite to play vs favorite to teach?

Mr. Buck:

“My favorite sport to play. I don’t know, I go back and forth between wrestling and football. But if I had to give a nod I’d go football. My favorite one to teach is badminton. Badminton’s a hit no matter what. As soon as the nets and rackets come out everyone is moving.”

Mr. Reed:

“My favorite to play is badminton. My favorite to teach is probably badminton.”

What is an album or song that is the soundtrack to your day at BHS?

Mr. Reed:

“Heart of a Champion by Nelly.”

What PE teacher do you remember from high school?

Mr. Buck:

“I wouldn’t say they were too involved or impactful, but one PE teacher I did have was in middle school, Mr. Fitz, short for Fitzgerald. He was probably my coolest PE teacher that I had. As far as the motivation goes for becoming a PE teacher. I had to just assess the things that I wanted to do with my career.”
