Star Community Newspapers:

Diane Davey, physical education teacher and coach at Plano Senior High School, has been named the 2006 Texas Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Teacher of the Year for physical education.

Congratulations! Sounds like she’s doing the kind of PE that will help kids develop life long skills.

Star Community Newspapers:

Among the changes in Davey’s classes has been the individualization of instruction. In her weight training classes the students set goals that are different from student to student. She has also integrated technology in her classes, for example the students wear heart rate monitors which allow them to exercise within their safety target zone.

Obviously not a subject covered by the TAKS.
