- Justin Nassivera
- My name is Justin Nassivera and I am currently in my Junior year at SUNY Cortland studying Physical Education. I'm a huge sports fan and love my Boston Celtics and Red Sox. Basketball, Baseball, and Golf are huge passions of mine and would love to coach them someday in the school setting. I have always loved teaching and coaching kids and have always wanted to become a PE teacher because it was always my favorite class in school. Many people have strong opinions against physical education and I believe that myself and other physical educators need to spread the word of what exactly we are doing in the PE world.

Wrapping Up the Semester
As I sit and think about everything that I have done throughout the semester, I firmly believe that I have grown so much in my teaching abilities this semester than any other semester combined. Being in 255 gave me much more confidence within myself when it came to standing up and teaching in front of people. I also learned a great deal about how much work actually goes into planning a lesson and making it fun for my students and myself as a growing teacher. In stats, I learned how important assessment is in PE and why we need to do it our classes. But most importantly, I've gained new friendships and connections and have felt much more comfortable talking with my teachers and asking them for guidance with my classes. I cannot wait to get out and start my observations of the middle school and the high school for the next two weeks to see what its actually like out there!
