About Me

Welcome! My name is Nicole DeSalvia and I'm a Senior Physical Education major at SUNY Cortland. I look forward to a long and rewarding career in Physical Education. I've been a member of the Women's Club Lacrosse team here at SUNY Cortland since my freshman year, and a captain since my junior year. I love working with children and learning about the human body and the numerous benefits of physical activity and their correlation with mental capabilities. I've recently been involved in working with children and young adults with disabilities and find this to be rewarding, challenging and exciting new experience.

Physical education candidates use effective communication and pedagogical skills and strategies to enhance student engagement and learning.

Including visual aids is a great strategy to enhance student learning and engagement. Pictured above is a collage of a bulletin board I made for high school students at Henninger High School in Syracuse, NY.
