A group of CSU Monterey Bay kinesiology students taught alongside Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School PE teachers this fall.
The students were in CSUMB's Intro to Teaching Physical Education class, which required they join PE teachers at one of four local schools, including Catalina. Their teacher, Jody Garry, said students gave Catalina high marks in their end-of-semester evaluation.
On Catalina's part, Lower and Middle School Athletic Director Debra Burke said she enjoyed hosting the students and watching their confidence and knowledge grow. The kids also liked learning from their new college helpers.
Both schools hope the partnership can continue.
