Job Description for Physical Education Teacher

A physical education teacher is responsible for developing instructional plans that encourage physical activity in students ranging from kindergarten through college. These typically include organized games and sports. The teacher needs to be able to both maintain order and improve student learning. The teacher should be able to work with students of all abilities and accommodate disabled students. Knowledge of basic first aid is necessary, as injuries can occur in any sport. In many schools, physical education teachers also are responsible for instructing classes in other topics, such as health or driver’s education. Secondary school teachers often coach a varsity or junior varsity team at the school, though this is not usually required.
