The Physical and Health Education Teacher Education (P/HETE) program hosted Jason Acosta, program manager for the office of teacher recruitment and quality for the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE), on Monday, February 4. Teacher candidates listened to an exciting hiring plan for New York City’s 1,800 urban schools. The initiative by Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York City, promises 500 licensed physical educators by 2019, followed by an additional 500 certified health educators in the years to come. This movement provides further justification and acknowledges the value of quality physical and health education in the well-rounded growth of each child.
