How does SHAPE America advance your career?

I joined SHAPE America to be in the loop and up-to-date with the latest trends in our profession. I'm always on the lookout for new materials related to health and fitness, and ways to motivate 8th graders, process assessments, and integrate technology into my classroom.

Why did you become a SHAPE America member?

When I stepped into my first national convention, simply being in the presence of thousands of physical educators was powerful. My passion was reignited in part by existing in the same space as so many like-minded people.

What resources does SHAPE America offer you?

Every teacher needs to prioritize his or her plan to promote continued learning when they are finished with their post-secondary experience. Being a member of SHAPE America is a fantastic choice for future physical educators as they are presented with so many resources when they start their careers. Attending a conference almost guarantees new professional connections and friendships.
