Helen Pino, Eisenhower Middle School

Helen Pino, a physical education teacher at Eisenhower Middle School, has been chosen by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards to serve on a committee composed of a select group of educators from across the country to assure the board’s Physical Education Standards reflects the best practices and latest research in the field. The 13-member committee, which consists of 10 National Board Certified Teachers, was chosen from a pool of more than 200 applicants. Pino said she was honored to be selected on this committee because “I find it imperative to provide a physical education program that uses a well thought out curriculum which challenges students physically, socially, emotionally and developmentally. Physical education teachers have struggled for many years to convince educators, parents, administrators, policy makers, and government entities that our program is a worthwhile academic subject worthy of consideration as a core content subject. I will continue to advocate for rigorous curriculum and standards at the local and national level.” There are nearly 1,700 teachers nationwide who have achieved National Board Certification in the field of physical education, 17 of them in APS.
