Teacher Tuesday: May 23, 2017
The incredible commitment that Jeff Moyer displays by involving his students in the “Hoops for Heart” program at Spring Ford In 5th/6th Grade Center in Spring-Ford Area School District definitely is deserving of being highlighted in this week’s #TeacherTuesday.
For the past 20 years, this phys-ed teacher has organized a full week of student activities that have allowed more than 3,500 students to have fun while contributing over $225,000 to the American Heart Association! He also raises additional funds by organizing a silent auction for staff members and asking teachers to pay to dress down on the final day of Hoops for Heart, this year contributing $850 to the total.
Says Jeff, “I see a variety of students every day and the smiles that the students give to me help inspire me to keep doing what I love to do.” He enjoys seeing the students have fun and “whether it is teaching health, physical education, adaptive physical education, or running activities like Hoops for Heart, the students really love participating and that really makes me feel great.”
