Re "P.E. Gets a Life" (June 26) and "Testing the Teachers" (June 27): Lynell George and I have very different memories of physical education. I was one of those P.E. students who wore the "polyester zip-up suit." Unlike George, however, P.E. classes offered me some of my best memories while growing up. In fact, my experiences inspired me to want to become a P.E. teacher. Now after 18 years of teaching P.E., I would like to present some personal views. The problem is not the capabilities or commitment of the P.E. teacher; it's money and priority.
