Kim Berg

Physical Education Specialist
Alamance Elementary School
Greensboro, North Carolina

Kim has taught physical education at Alamance Elementary School in Greensboro, North Carolina for 13 years and received a PFA grant in the fall of 2000. Kim’s approach to teaching the “whole child” has created a love of physical activity and a host of life skills that encompasses respect, caring, determination, responsibility, integrity, giving, courage and self discipline. Her class motto is “Build each other up, don’t tear each other down”. Her principal, Mary Foley, writes to us; “Mrs. Berg’s emphasis on identifying behaviors that build up, rather than tear down, and her clear expectations for performance, regardless of gender, results in every student willingly participating and meeting with success.” Kim possesses the enthusiasm and energy that makes a real difference. She is model teacher in every sense of the word.

2010 Update

Kim Berg, All Star Teacher 2002

My name is Kim Berg and have been teaching Physical Education for 21 years at Alamance Elementary School in Greensboro, NC. I received PFA in 2001. My favorite parts of the Project Fit America program are PACER, Smile Mile, Chart and Challenge, cup lessons and Station Stars. My school holds many PFA records including flexed arm-hang, PACER, and the pole climb challenge. One accomplishment that I have achieved since receiving PFA was being named Guilford County Schools Elementary Teacher of the Year. I was up against 99 classroom teachers, EC teachers, art teachers and music teachers. To have received this honor as a Physical Education teacher was incredible. I felt like PFA was instrumental in the decision of the judges.

My students love the program and constantly feel challenged individually no matter what activity we are doing. Another amazing thing that has happened was becoming a PFA trainer. I have traveled across America working with amazing P.E. teachers and their students teaching them about Project Fit. What an amazing opportunity Project Fit has given me. When I do these in-services, I learn some of their best practices and get to bring them back to my students. Some of my students favorite activities have been ones that I learned from these P.E. teachers. Thank you Project Fit America for helping me to develop the program I have today!
