A bit of self indulgence - humour me! I always wanted to be a PE teacher since I was 12 years old - This might have had something to do with the fact that my Dad and Uncle were both PE teachers! I was brought up helping my Dad at sports days setting out equipment, timing races, putting kit away. BTW - before this I wanted to be a lighthouse keeper. I always thought I would get to mid 40's and then start looking at less active options - like class teacher, Head of Year and maybe even Assistant Head! As time went on I decided I would stick it out as long as possible as an active PE teacher - maybe 50's. I enjoyed it so much Anyway, to get to the point, I retire tomorrow at 61 years old and am still actively teaching PE. I could, physically, still continue, I reckon for at least another 5 years, but, as I no longer need to, financially, I have made the decision to use the time wisely to do other 'stuff'. I have seen so many changes over the years, from the closed/open skills approach of Barbara Knapp, to 'Teaching games through Understanding', more technology has been brought in, activities have gone from the more traditional to things like Parkour and Zumba. Of course, there are also the massive general changes that have happened in schools. I was just wondering - are there many others out there with similar ages who are still actively teaching PE? So - if I'm not the oldest PE teacher in town - who is?
