PE Coach Reed, Arkinus

Welcome to Physical Education

Hello! My name is Arkinus Reed. As a physical educator, I strive on the students being successful. Through both my studies and teaching experience, I have found that one of the most effective ways to teach reflectively in the physical education setting is to incorporate discipline and station into classroom planning, so each day my students are excited to come to my class.
 I graduated from UTEP with a Bachelor of Science Degree, and received my Master's in Education from Lesley College. I am certified to teach all levels of Physical Education. I have taught high school, middle school and at the Telles Academy.
 I believe that the key is to challenge my students mentally and continually strive to learn how to improve their body and mental state, for "whatever the mind conceive and believe, it can achieve". So through being discipline, focus, and setting goals, will help them be the person that they would like to be. Research suggest that exercise affects raw thinking power, improves memory and thought processes such as planning and learning. Positive correlation between exercise and cognitive function continue to emerge.
 There is no easy way to build and improve their body. It takes knowledge lots of hard work, dedication, and adequate recovery, it also requires proper nutrition. That is why I also talk to my students about the important of nutrition. Eat a range of healthy foods. a proper, balanced, and sufficient diet is essential to building muscular strength and allowing the intense training necessary to produce muscle strength and size. It is estimated that 2,300 to 3,500 calories are required to build one pound of muscle.
  If you would like to talk to me, my conference period is from 2:30 to 3:15PM.
