Karl Ely, P.E. teacher at Christa McAuliffe Academy, was selected as the Central District Secondary Physical Education Teacher of the Year by SHAPE America. The Central District is made up of nine states in the Midwest region. Ely is now a finalist for the National Secondary Physical Education Teacher of the Year.
“I love teaching students new activities and see how their skills develop over time,” Ely said. “I’m part of a great team of P.E. teachers across the district and here at CMA.”
Earlier this year, Ely was named Secondary P.E. Teacher of the Year by the Kansas Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.
