Mendiola, Daniel

Welcome to My Physical Education Class

 

Frisbee ActivityAt this time I would like to introduce myself, my name is Daniel Mendiola. I am honored to say that i've been teaching Physical Education at Lee Elementary for the past 13 years. Since being at Lee, I've taught kinder through 5th grade.  I earned my BS and my MS degree from the University of Texas at El Paso.  
My conference time is from 10:30 to 11:15. I can also be reached at odmendio@episd.org 

My coaching philosophy assists students to reach their ultimate potential while having fun with physical activity. My goal is to have all my students engaged in physical play and enjoy the experiences that encompass physical activity.  I would also like my students to put personal accomplishments aside and for my students to experience co-operative play without feeling left out.  
I will teach, model and assist my students with any skill or technique they might need assistance with.

Another important aspect of my philosophy is sportsmanship and respect.  I expect all my students to respect all people involved in an activity.  With guidance and modeling, I would like all my students to learn to win and learn to lose.
By the end of the year, I would like to provide my students with life long activities that they can use in the future.
