NASPE Standard 6

Standard 6: Professionalism
Physical education teacher candidates demonstrate dispositions essential to becoming effective professionals

Throughout the Spring '09 semester, Nick was asked to complete 10 hours of community service for his PED 255 class. Nick went above and beyond the 10 hours. He was awarded the Power of 10 award for doing at least 10 hours of community service in the Cortland community in memory of the Virginia Tech students who lost their lives in April 2007. Most of Nick's volunteer work was teaching various forms of physical activity to the Cortland Youth or his fellow students at SUNY Cortland. Nick started to realize that he enjoyed volunteering because he was interacting with others and also benefiting from the practice he was gaining in teaching others physical activity.

In addition to his volunteer work for his own enjoyment, Nick has taken his education with a professional attitude. He has been on the president's list, a member of the top 5% of his class and most recently received the Senior Academic Achievement Award from the Alumni Association presented to the top 5 seniors in the School of Professional Studies at SUNY Cortland.
