Title
Society of Health and Physical Educators Awards

Discussion
At the October 2014 Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE) Florida Convention, three teachers from Brevard Public Schools will receive the following recognitions:
  • Program Recognition Award: Tabitha Best, Manatee Elementary School
  • Teacher of the Year Award for Middle School Physical Education: Ashley Riley, Central Middle School
  • Teacher of the Year Award for High School Physical Education: Barbara Berry, Eau Gallie High School
These awards are given to teachers in our state that consistently provide unique and innovative programs in physical education, conducted by certified physical educators.  All of our awards recipients are highly qualified, exceptionally committed, professional physical educators.  Of all the critical components that must merge for educational excellence and student learning, the leadership provided by the teacher is critical.  We are proud to have these three incredible teacher leaders acknowledged for their excellence.


Recommendation
Recognize these teachers for receiving SHAPE awards.
