Wayne has taught students from preschool through eighth grade over the past 22 years. In that time he has done extensive work integrating technology, fostering creativity and utilizing intrinsic motivation in the classroom.
His goal is to motivate, educate, and inspire students to use their bodies and minds as vehicles for personal development, wellness, fitness, leisure, and service to their community.
Unique to Wayne's teaching is a method he adapted to integrate original stories (and existing ones) with physical activities. This method enhances the learning process while engaging multiple learning styles. It also simplifies the process of academic integration and helps Wayne to easily include material from his students' other classes and disciplines. Finally, this method dovetails easily with the character education programs in which many schools participate.
