On February 19, 2009, our Motor Development class had the privilege of having Aaron Hart, a physical educator and founder of the MyStationPE website, as a guest lecturer.  Aaron completed his undergraduate work at Penn State and taught PE at a public school in Brooklyn following graduation.  After a few years of teaching, he earned his Master's Degree from SUNY Cortland and founded the MyStationPE website.  During our 50 minute class, Aaron shared many of his past experiences, offered advice to use in the future, and gave us a tour of his website.

MyStationPE is a valuable tool for any Physical Educator.  The website has a number of developmentally-appropriate games and activities that PE teachers can bring into the learning environment.  Each game includes a diagram and demonstration video, instructional aids that can be printed out, assessments in pdf, visual cues, skill extensions, instructional hints, modifications for large classes and students of different abilities, and much more.  I think it's safe to say that our teaching group will be bringing many of the games from the website to St. Mary's.
