What did teachers have to say about this program last year? 

I completed the information form thinking MVT could be a chance to highlight the schools, programs, and partners I work with. The most meaningful part of this recognition has been the kind words and stories from students and parents about the positive impact the PE program, school, and partnerships I work toward have had.
