Brenda Byrd

Yuma Elementary School
Gate City, Virginia

Parked under the Project Fit America umbrella you will find such a vast array of diverse PE programming you will have to do a double take and wonder how the heck does this one little powerhouse do all this!!! She has the energy of five people and the passion of a 1,000!!

Walking clubs, Morning Exercise, networking with fellow teachers to create “reward” PE time for academic accomplishments, scholarships for PE materials, writing and receiving grants such as VA Action for Healthy Kids, the top 10 school for last 2 year for Jump/Hoop Combination and that is just the tip of the iceberg...she is a tireless champion for children’s fitness and any student lucky enough to have Brenda for a teacher is a student that will truly learn how to become fit for life and gain a lifetime love of physical activity. Brenda is a teacher’s teacher and someone we are so proud of to call our own. She is a true model of what it means to create National Exemplary Physical Education. Brenda we salute you and never fail to fall over ourselves impressed with all that is you!!!
