Mr. Barnes has been at our school for a long time. He has been teaching P.E. since I was in Kindergarten. He's probably the best P.E. teacher the school has ever had. I got a chance to interview him. Here's what he said:
Did you enjoy school when you were a kid?
"I enjoyed most of school, but I liked playing at home more. Recess and P.E. were my favorite."
What was your favorite subject in school?
"I (of course) loved P.E, but I really enjoyed math and would like to teach High School Math someday."
Did you ever want to quite school?
"At first I thought going through High School would be enough, but soon realized, that to get a good job, I would have to go to college. Which I ended up really enjoying."
Have you every wanted to be anything instead of a P.E. Teacher?
"I started into college wanting to be a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) but I got bored."
Why do you like being a gym teacher.(And you can't say the summers off.)
"I do like the summers off, but I like that I get to play games with kids every day that I loved playing as a kid. What could be better than that?"
