Watch Free Livestream Keynote Video Now! This year we were fortunate to hear five talented individuals share how they view physical education as a part of the whole. Each keynoter shared different ways of thinking that were uplifting, transformational, funny, and inspirational. I have provided a few of my thoughts below on each keynoter with a link to their talks.
Sarah Gietschier-Hartman is a middle school physical education teacher from Missouri. I was personally blown-away with Sarah’s ability to totally command center stage with her honest and down-to-earth presence.
As one of the many talented members of the online platform PHYSEDagogy, she reflects the very best of the type of young leaders we see in our profession! You can view her entire keynote using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr2E5Y-CRHg
Dr. Greg Dale is the Director of Sport Psychology for Duke Athletics. A former physical education teacher and coach, Greg was able to share his personal thoughts on how PE teachers and coaches can create the optimum climate where students and athletes can strive.
As a seasoned presenter, Dr. Dale’s insights are both practical and challenging. You can view his entire keynote using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Peu4Q8oYdI8

Jo Bailey is a high school physical education teacher who walks the talk. Her keynote encourages all of us to help every student to find his or her own “roar” so that more individuals value PE for the better!

Naomi Hartl takes us back to her high school basketball world. This is a world of long hours of practice, never-ending effort, and dashed dreams. However, she ultimately re-discovers her real joy. Naomi’s time on the stage is the perfect closing keynote message. You can view her entire keynote using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jndGPliHZ4Q
