As a Physical Education Teacher, it is a pleasure to see students make the effort to accomplish something in the sport arena. Some of them want to be pushed, others want to be guided and then others do it effortless. It is a combination of actions that makes the job so intriguing. It gives you the opportunity to understand students better and be able to communicate with them but more influence them to get to a higher stage of being independent.As I waited for the students to be in for the P.E classes I saw this student approaching me with a curious expression on his face. His first question was: “Are you the new P.E Teacher”. In five minutes time I discovered that he liked P.E. We started with Basketball and I was already impressed with his athletic abilities. For the coming months that were to come he proved himself a disciplined athlete. From flag football to a cartwheel, from working individually to teamwork, he would always go for the best.Looking at Jovan Robinson made me feel that it was worth it being a teacher. He would come out during his free time to help me with the lower forms but also with the children from the primary school. His natural ability to handle children is one of the things I will never forget.For Jovan I had no grade, with him it could never be about the grade. It was for sure beyond. He would never want to know what his grades were. He always wanted to know if there were ways to improve, improve on what he was doing.

He has always helped me with refereeing, organizing and even coaching. The children would always listen to him.

I wish him all the luck. For me it is a great loss him leaving the Saba Comprehensive School. At the same time I know that there lies a future ahead of him. Jovan, all the best in your academic and sports life.

The Physical Education Teacher,

Derek Spence
