This was our second time visiting St. Marys School in downtown Cortland and was definitely memorable experience. My group was stationed to the cafeteria where we intermingled with the students and got to know them on a personal level. This will not be the type of work one would normally do in a physical education setting, however it is still important to get experience getting to know the students and learning how to connect with them. While in the cafeteria I played various board games with the kids. I also learned from Michael that the rule for connect four is tie goes to the student. After time in the cafeteria we moved up to the gymnasium and played along with the students. And for a lucky number of us, we got some professional training on how to jump rope properly by Kasey. As well as playing jump rope, we played different basketball games and also some soccer. Even though the lab was two hours long the time flew by. Definitely another awesome experience at St. Mary's School.
