The SHAPE America Podcast, hosted by members Collin Brooks and Matt Pomeroy, offers a great opportunity for professional development! Each monthly episode of the podcast will feature discussions on a variety of topics relevant to health and physical educators, including interviews with SHAPE America Teachers of the Year and other leaders in the field. You'll also hear the latest about SHAPE America's initiative, "50 Million Strong by 2029."
Listen to this podcast about #PhysEd teachers having conversations about all things PE with educators from around the world. The best part about this podcast is that they used the voxer app to interview their guest speakers!
The #PhysEd Podcast
In 2013, Nathan Horne and Joey Feith got together to shoot the breeze about #physed, health, and technology. The result was The #PhysEd Podcast. Subscribe to hear why thousands of teachers enjoy listening in on Nathan and Joey's conversation.

50 Million Strong by 2029
"Approximately 50 million students are currently enrolled in America's elementary and secondary schools (grades pre-K to 12). SHAPE America wants to ensure that by the time today's preschoolers graduate from high school in 2029, all of America's students are benefiting from the skills, knowledge and confidence to enjoy healthy, meaningful physical activity."
