Students living in the urban setting often come from other countries and they are not accustomed to our customs and culture. Therefore, students are not aware of the pedestrian, bus, bicycle safety measures that can keep them and their family safe. Come to this session to be a part of the conversation with one Physical Education teacher who has spent 26 years teaching students about safety. Participants will learn 3 pedestrian safety issues students are not familiar with, discuss the “I Walk To School Day” program, be given several examples of programs tried over the past several years and hear about 3 organizations that can assist them in their quest to educate students.
Judy has been a Physical Education teacher for the past 26 years with the Houston Independent School District. She is owner of Zebra Learning, a professional development consultant for teachers and a CPR/AED/First Aid certified instructor who is an owner of an Educational Service Center. She has coached other teachers how to talk to elementary students about safety and encourages physical education teachers to teach students the importance of knowing the laws and rules for being safe.
Her professional involvements include S.H.A.P.E. America formally AAHPERD, Texas Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance and various projects that inform, teach, engage and motivate students to live a healthy lifestyle that will pave a pathway to longevity beyond a 100 years.
