In this episode, I interview Dr. Bob Pangrazi and Dr. Aaron Beighle about the work that they have done together for the past 20 years. In particular, we discuss the journey of writing their well-known book Dynamic Physical Education for Elementary School Children (now in its 19th edition) and how they constantly strive to refine and improve each edition of the book. We also dive into a discussion about what quality physical education is and what it is not. Both Bob and Aaron remain highly committed to open dialogue about best practice and share not only what excites them about the profession in this episode but also what their biggest concerns are. We also share our thoughts about the role of social media in professional growth, but also how social media can stand in the way of getting better and constantly growing as educators. It was a pleasure to have Bob and Aaron on my Run Your Life podcast series.
