PE & Fine Arts Conference
Region 16 invites you to attend our second annual PE & Fine Arts Conference on June 20th at Region 16. This year's theme is Color the World with PE & Fine Arts, and our keynote speaker will be Mike Kuczala, author of The Kinesthetic Classroom. Now it's time to enhance the support that will ignite passion for the arts within our students, our classrooms, and the community. Join us for engaging breakout sessions with choir, music, band, visual arts theatre, and PE. We have also added sessions that are focused on our little learners.
The Fest will be held at Region 16 and will bring together PREK - 12th Fine Arts and PE teachers from across the Panhandle.
Mike Kuczala is the coauthor of The Kinesthetic Classroom: Teaching and Learning through Movement, a book and philosophy that has changed the view of teaching and learning around the world. Mike is also a former American Fitness Professionals and Associates Certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant, former competitive bodybuilder, and trained in the art of Effortless Meditation. He proudly and humbly comes from a family of educators including his wife, sister, both parents and three grandparents. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Music from Kutztown University and Master of Music Education from the University of Northern Colorado. Mike enjoyed a 10-year band and choral directing career in both Colorado and Pennsylvania. “I am the product of three generations of teachers. Education is what I love and do. It is always an honor and pleasure to work with both educators in helping them to become true instructional leaders, and corporate executives and trainers in providing presentation skills and effectiveness. My background in education gave rise to my love of teaching, public speaking, curriculum and training design, and helping people create goals and live their dreams."
