     My name is Peter Higgins. I have been teaching for twenty seven years; I have been teaching at Hawfields since 2009. I earned my bachelor's degree from East Carolina University and have National Board Certification in Physical Education. Physical activity and sports have been an important part of my life since childhood.  I decided to become a PE teacher because of the positive influence exercise and my teachers and coaches had on my life.  In high school, I was on my school’s track and cross country teams.  I then continued  to run cross country in college. I believe participation in physical activity improves one's self esteem, academic achievement, emotional health, and overall quality of life. That is why my Health and PE programs focus on developing motor and sport skills, improving fitness and an appreciation for physical activity; so that my students will have the confidence, ability  and desire to choose physical activities outside of school and for the rest of their lives. 


      **During remote learning, all student assignments will be delivered through the learning management system Canvas. Your teachers will explain how this will work during the first few Zoom Meetings.  Students can access Canvas through the ABSS Clever Portal.

    ** Parents/Guardians are encouraged to download the Canvas Parent Application on their smart device for full access to your child's learning.  You can find a Canvas Parent App guide here. (Spanish Versions)
    ** If you are using your personal computer, you may need to download the zoom application.  You will be prompted to do so when you try to join a meeting for the first time. Here is what it may look like.
