PE Teacher Receives Recognition

Shanna Hubbard, Physical Education teacher at Vienna Elementary School, has been recognized by the Maryland Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE) with a 2020 Simon McNeely Award. Ms. Hubbard was honored at the SHAPE Maryland Awards Banquet on November 13, held virtually this year, and was the only Eastern Shore recipient of the award.

The award is presented to PE/Health educators with at least five years professional experience who “demonstrate excellence and innovation in teaching and service”. Ms. Hubbard is in her sixth year of teaching and her third at Vienna Elementary.

Ms. Hubbard said of the award, “I consider this a real honor because we have lots of amazing PE educators in Dorchester County.”

Dr. Paula Turner, Supervisor of Science, Health, Physical Education, and STEM for Dorchester County Public Schools, said, “It was effortless to nominate Ms. Shanna Hubbard for the Simon McNeely Award. I was beyond proud when she won, but extremely moved to witness her being recognized amongst her peers across the state and in the presence of her family last Friday evening."
