Caryl is a professor at St. Cloud State University and she was a co-author of the MNSHAPE physical education standards. She shares with us the genius behind the standards that made them clearly written and intentionally vague allowing you the PE teacher to be in control of your class.
Social-Emotional Learning is what Standards 4 & 5 are all about.

Episode 4 - This is part one of a series called Connection Over Content. We visit with 2012 MNSHAPE Teacher of the year Joe McCarthy and dive into priority number one in distance learning which is building relationships.
