Physical education teacher Anna Bainbridge teaches Woodhull students more than the physical skills necessary to play a game. She encourages students on opposing teams to work together in ways that support the fun in games.

During physical education classes, captains from two opposing teams agreed on the rules by which a familiar game should be played. Once they agreed, the two captains returned to their teams to explain the agreed upon rules.

Students were then instructed to back against the wall before Mrs. B. issued the “go” signal. Students followed the newly agreed upon rules throughout the game, demonstrating great sportsmanship.
