Joe is the 2012 MNSHAPE Elementary Physical Education Teacher of the Year and teaches at Meadowview Elementary School in Farmington, MN. His sessions will include:
Session Title: Academic Games in Physical Education
Learn from National speaker Joe McCarthy from Farmington MN on how simple it is to add spelling and math activities into your Physical Education curriculum. You will leave with ideas that can be implemented into any program next week. Great advocacy tool!
Session Title: #Physed Favorites
Each activity in this collection focuses on one standard and one strand of outcomes, typically fitness knowledge with an emphasis on physical literacy. The activity plan has been simplified to keep instruction concise yet effective, planting seeds of awareness that will grow throughout the entire school year.
In this session, you will learn how to play my students favorite activities!
Session Title: LitPE:
Literacy Physical Education (LitPE) is a program designed to help a specific grade level that is behind, based on the statewide reading assessment to each grade level standards. Our data shows that students who are in our 12 week class will more than double their peers and up to five the national average on the winter assessment. Students come to the gym every day, fifteen minutes for 12 weeks. Every class embeds fluency, comprehension and spelling into movement activities. Students in this class learn how to combat “learned helplessness” by the end of the 12 weeks. Students will use whiteboards, markers and towels as their learning tools. Paper and pencil is another option for you to use. This program will cost the school less than $100.
Michelle Hillier: (Sponsored by SEEC)
Michelle Hillier is the co-visionary and Head of Groove EDGEucation. She has her B.Ed degree, and after spending years in the classroom, she is now passionately committed to getting dance and movement into ALL areas of education through the Groove EDGEucation programs and resources with her “partner in crime” Amy.

Session Title: Start grooving…you can’t get it wrong!
Groove EDGEucation’s Michelle Hillier will take us through her movement-based teaching approach that engages the BODY, BRAIN and BEING while learning. Students learn through equal engagement of the physical, cognitive, social and emotional self.
