Warhawk Spotlight: Opportunity to excel despite circumstances

Student leaves behind wheelchair for graduation

Logan Prickett, namesake of The Logan Project at Auburn University at Montgomery at center of NSF-funded research for math instruction for learners with disabilities, accepted his diploma in his own style, under his own steam.

Family Fun and Fitness Night success

Physical Education Teacher Candidates recently organized Family Fun and Fitness Night at Eclectic Elementary School as a culminating project for the Measurement and Evaluation in Physical Education course –– taught by Andria Walker –– during their field experience hours at the school. The event was held on April 23 and approximately 60 students, parents and siblings attended. The event included both indoor and outdoor activities, such as a mother/son vs. father/daughter kickball game, and Teacher Candidates provided door prizes for the drawings at the end of the night.

The Department of Kinesiology has been partnering with Eclectic Elementary School since 2014 to provide quality field experiences for Physical Education Teacher Candidates. During the 30 field experience hours, Teacher Candidates assist the physical education teachers with conducting the Alabama Physical Fitness Assessment and also teach three sequential lessons to the students in kindergarten through 4th grade.

It is an excellent learning opportunity for all involved. The Department of Kinesiology is thankful for the willingness of Eclectic Elementary School to allow AUM’s Teacher Candidates to fulfill their field experience requirements there, and they look forward to many years of continued partnership.
