My name is Giuseppe Giurlanda and I am very excited to join the P.S. 349Q team for the 2017-2018 school year.  I’ve taught physical education for 4 years and received my education at Nassau Community College, CUNY Queens College, and Adelphi University. In my eyes, I believe that physical education is one of the most important subjects in a school curriculum.  Not only will physical education help students understand the importance of being active and healthy, it will also give them the opportunity to work on the social skills, thinking process, and ability to learn new skills that they can use in their later life.  Physical Education should be a place where all students are given an opportunity to participate to reach their highest potential, and enjoy themselves as they do that. This is way I am honored to have the opportunity to teach the children of P.S. 349Q and have them develop to their full potential.
