The World's Most Researched Physical Education & Physical Activity Programs!


Shining a spotlight on outstanding health and physical education teachers across the country

SPARK is excited to partner with SHAPE America to recognize outstanding teachers and support the Teacher of the Year program.

This program recognizes teachers at a district and national level in six categories:

  • Physical Education — Elementary
  • Physical Education — Middle School
  • Physical Education — High School
  • Adapted Physical Education
  • School Health Education
  • Dance Education

SPARK will join a Partner Network of SPARK, Wellness Training Specialists (WellTrain), Gopher, and Goodheart-Wilcox Publisher to support District and National Teacher of the Year winners. We are dedicated to providing opportunities for these teachers to share their successes and journey to becoming a Teacher of the Year.

“SPARK is honored to be a part of this Partner Network and we are dedicated to making history together with the SHAPE America Teacher of the Year program. It’s important to SPARK to dedicate resources and support SHAPE America — our national organization,” said SPARK Executive Director Julie Frank.

“We want to help share these fantastic teachers’ talents and expertise with the larger health and physical education community. We are excited to utilize our past experience and expertise working with Teachers of the Year. Some of the most passionate SPARK supporters and contributors have been former Teachers of the Year and have played a role in the development of SPARK content.”
