much free time on the hands of youth leads to boredom.
But Los Alamos teacher and coach Justin Black has plans in place to alleviate the doldrums and turn excess time into extracurricular activity.
Two sessions of summer physical education classes and three sessions of basketball skills camp will have those in attendance increasing coordination, skills and burning calories.
“The classes are good for anyone in elementary, K through 6,” said Black. “Everyone needs more activity and this is an opportunity to offer that plus fundraise for the PE program.”
Black uses the funds raised from the summer sessions and puts them right back into his programs at Chamisa Elementary School.
For his efforts, Black has been named PE Teacher of the Year.
“It has been very nice to be recognized by my peers,” said Black. “It has also been a very busy year as I prepare to apply for the Southwest District PE teacher of the year in October.”
This summer, Black looks forward to using his new larger scooters and experimenting new games, during the summer sessions.
During the school year, Black only sees students 45 minutes a week.
