     My name is Peter Higgins. I have been teaching for twenty three years; this is my eighth year teaching at Hawfields. 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.
