# 42 -PE 4 Every Kid feat. Mike Graham

Every Physical Education class is an opportunity for student growth and development. Mike Graham approaches his Elementary Physical Education classes with creativity and ingenuity.

While Chalk Talk typically talks with teachers and coaches at the secondary level, this is a great episode for all of our listeners because it breaks down tech, advocacy and all things PE!
