PE 2021, Low GPA, Non-Target, my chances???

So I started doing some preparation for PE interviews back in April in time for July/August applications. I am really getting worried my odds of breaking in are especially low, because I dont have any relevant internship experience. I also come from a school that has no on campus PE recruitment events, and I have a low GPA. Despite the fact that I have no experience in making kids run laps, and can't run a full mile myself, im really hoping to break in as maybe a 5th grade PE teacher, and maybe one day 6th grade because i've heard that comp is better and a much better work/life balance, and has excellent exit ops to the top tier, aka, highschool.

Anything is possible you just have to network. One of my mentors when I was in that stage you're speaking of told me he broke out a map (this is the old days) and circled / highlighted every shop that hired (middle school, high school, elementary) and cold called until he got a job at my place.

Anything is possible you just gotta make it happen bro

WSO just keeps getting less and less funny..shoutout to the few that actually make me laugh and have a normal, witty sense of humor. This ain't it

Forget about running laps.

Hands: Make them do excel models without touching the mouse.
Legs: mini elliptical that fits under chair
Cardio: Make sure that their email pops up with notifications at random asking for work to be done ASAP
Diet: Show them the healthiest options they can get through Seamless
Weights: Have them lift the jammed printer. Maybe dropping it from their shoulder level will get the printer working again.

Number of reps? Enough to last 70-80 hours a week

This is the real PE class . You show your interviewers this and you'll be immediately given an exploding offer.

Unless you got the connects, good luck young one. I think you need to reevaluate why you want to do PE. PE is all about the relationships.
