is the All Star Teacher Showcase?
Every year PFA receives teacher evaluations
and follows up with every school in the country. Through this
process we are discovering teachers that have gone far beyond
the typical program implementation. They have created new and
outstanding ways to incorporate the PFA program and motivate
their students to be active and have fun with fitness.
The All Star Teacher Showcase
is a national spotlight on these teachers and their ideas.
Sharing their lesson plans and creativity so that every PFA
school in the country can access these games and challenges
for use in their own school.
This award is modeled after
our first All Star Teacher, Steve Cox, from the Des Moines Public
Schools, Des Moines, Iowa. Steve's unique and highly successful
creative programming and commitment to physical education became
the "yard stick" for which we measure new All Star
Teacher nominees. It is exciting to report that Steve retired
from teaching at the Des Moines Public Schools June, 2003 and
now serves full time in the capacity as our National In-Field
Supervisor. His leadership and continuous innovation have created
a new generation All Star Teachers and is helping physical educators
of all disciplines to reach beyond the classroom and help our
nation's youth to live healthier lives.
