If I could earn a living doing what I love most it would be teaching physical education and coaching soccer. I would teach physical education in my home town and as I taught I would pick soccer players not only for their soccer skills but for their need for self-esteem development. I would teach why there is such a need for increased physical activity and how being physically active can make people feel better about themselves.
I live in a state where childhood obesity is running rampant among our youth. Heart and lung disease is prominent among adults. I would teach the importance of a balanced, healthy diet and introduce healthy foods such as vegetables and fruits to them in both the classroom and on the soccer field. My goal is to get a job in my state and address the problem. By doing this I hope that a domino effect will begin, with my students teaching their families about physical activity and healthy eating and so on and so on.
