Adapted Physical Education

Justin Hutchinson, adapted physical education teacher, soccer coach, and football coach at Central High School is working with one of CIS's students on her balance and body control using a balance bike. As you can tell, she was doing a great job while having even a better time. This exercise is great for Cayce because she enjoys the freedom of movement throughout the campus, but at the same time she has to make decisions interacting with her environment and peers when she comes in contact with them. 
Justin says he loves this part of his job, working with kids in a personal setting, building relationships and meeting the needs of his students. He says it is rewarding, and he feels like he is making a difference in each student's life.
