Heidorn will talk about how K-12 physical education programs build character, sportsmanship and relationship-building skills in addition to keeping students physically fit. Heidorn taught as a physical education teacher and coach for eight years at the middle and high school level.

Parents and educators will find out what really happens when students take time out of the classroom for the gymnasium and playing field. UWG instructor Jennifer Koch and student interns at local schools will take part in the presentation.
