am honored to lead our organization during 2014! We have a
wealth of knowledge, experience, passion, and energy on our
Board of Directors as well as thousands of health/physical
educators (HPE) and developmental adapted physical educators
(DAPE) across the state that all can work together to focus
on the health and well-being of our school-age children.
We still have a
lot to do in our profession to ensure that the students of
Minnesota have access to knowledge and opportunities to
learn (and practice) positive health and physical education
behaviors/skills. As Dr. Jane Greenberg (2013 conference
keynote speaker) noted, this generation’s children will live
5 years LESS than their parents! It MUST be our mission as
HPE/DAPE educators in Minnesota to give them these 5 years
back and much, much MORE!
My goals for this
year include increasing membership, especially future
professionals – as they are our future! I am also focused on
increasing our regional workshops – getting ‘good stuff’ out
to teachers in their own backyard. This is especially
important for those teachers who are unable to attend the
fall conference and for teachers to have options DURING the
year to get rejuvenated! Finally, I am excited about our
fall 2014 conference and putting together yet ANOTHER great
conference for the HPE/DAPE teachers in the state!
Here is to a
GREAT 2014 – email me
(firstname.lastname@example.org ) with ANY suggestions,
questions, or concerns regarding our organization! Looking
forward to seeing you at a regional workshop and the fall
conference November 3-4 at Wayzata High School!
Join the MOVEment! Ensure that your
school provides a
comprehensive school physical activity program
with quality physical education as the foundation.
Our youth needs knowledge, skills, and confidence to
be physically active for a lifetime.
