The title of my blog comes from the joke that those who have "really easy" majors take made-up classes. More commonly the phrase is used to mock the course loads of division I athletes who take random classes in order to be eligible. As a Physical Education Major, I have encountered many who have mocked my choice of career path and say how easy I must have it. But, as many of you know, that is not the case. Phys. Ed. is a very challenging major with classes like Anatomy and Physiology, Exercise Physiology, Educational Psychology, and Motor Behavior (just to name a few). Not only do we take hard classes, but we also have to be passionate about teaching and have a love for helping kids. Some things cannot be taught in college classes, they are learned through experience. Some people are born with the characteristics that make a good Physical Educator and I encounter them every day in my "not so easy" classes.
