Chalk Talk – Episode 62 – Routines feat. Brian Hull

Episode # 62 – Routines feat. Brian Hull

Establishing routines in life can go a long way. That is why Brian Hull, Shape Teacher Of The Year, works with his students to help establish great routines in PE class as well.

This podcast was originally recorded, before all of our routines were disrupted by Covid-19, but has great insights for how we can structure class when we do get back to normal!
