Franklin resident Sarah Lowell of Cartoogechaye Elementary School will be honored as the Southern District Elementary School Physical Education Teacher of the Year by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) at its national convention in Charlotte, April 23-27. The Southern District represents 13 states from Virginia to Texas.
The award is given in recognition of outstanding teaching performance at the elementary school level and the ability to motivate today's youth to participate in a lifetime of physical activity.
Lowell believes that, “all students can learn. It is my responsibility as a teacher to know and accommodate the different learning styles of students. I make a conscious effort to incorporate a multitude of teaching styles, organizational techniques, and grouping strategies to maximize student achievement while accommodating individual learning styles.”
