Adapted PE Teacher Gets National Recognition

Doris Merzweiler gets a grant from the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance for developing fund-raising activities for special needs students.

Doris Merzweiler, an adapted PE teacher for APS, was one of only 10 physical education teachers in the nation to receive a 2012 Jump Rope for Heart/Hoops for Heart grant from the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

The grant will fund Merzweiler’s Activities for Heart program that includes special needs students in fund-raising activities for the American Heart Association.

As a grant recipient, Merzweiler will be honored at the Alliance’s annual convention in Boston in March. In addition, she has been asked to submit an article for The Pulse, the Alliance’s Jump Rope for Heart/Hoops for Heart newsletter.

Merzweiler is an itinerant teacher serving students at five schools: Hawthorne ES, La Mesa ES, Whittier ESHayes MS and Wilson MS.
