Yeah, I'm a physical education (K-12) major, which is in my school's Health and Human Performance Department. What you looking to do after school?

Probably something similar MikeD. Either that, or try to get on with one of the local sports organizations possibly? Also have considered the athletic training program. I was just curious to see if anyone was doing something similar and had some feedback. How is it working out so far?

I'm really looking forward to teaching, but in all honesty, I really hate the HHP department at my school. The professors have little real world experience, they give conflicting information, and many of the students are student-athletes (focus on "athletes") who think they're going to get a job coaching, but not have to teach. I have a 4.0 gpa and I basically have to beg for scholarship consideration. I think teaching PE is a good fit for me (my wife is also a teacher). I don't want to be one of those "roll out the ball types". I actually want to teach. The bad side, depending on your local area, is finding a job. It's not like we're in high demand. The good part, at least for me, is that if you can't find a job teaching, you can find a government job where you just need a Bachelors degree.

Interesting. Well thanks for the info brother. Good luck the rest of the way. Once you get your teaching gig it should be a gas!
