Fall 2018 KAHPERD Slate of Officers
President Elect - Verneda Edwards
Member at Large - Brandon Wolff
Brandon has been teaching physical education and health for 17 years. He currently teaches at Maize South Middle School. His belief the physical educator is to guide all students to be healthy, not only physically but mentally and socially for a lifetime. This healthy lifestyle is established due to an exposure of a wide variety of activities which in turn promotes skills needed for self-directed learning and personal knowledge. He is a PYFP trainer, IHT Trainer and Dove Self-Esteem Ambassador and serves on the Shape America Central District Leadership Council. Some of his accomplishments are 2014 KAHPERD Middle School Teacher of the Year, 2015 Shape America Central District Middle School Teacher of the Year, and Let’s Move in Active Schools National Award winner.
