Anne_WhitmireAnne Whitmire, as a Balfour Elementary physical education specialist, implemented state model programs in child conditioning and activities starting in 1977. She taught in her final year, 2002-03, in then-new Clear Creek Elementary. She also taught classroom teachers about leading PE class. When a child’s self-confidence emerges first in sports, she reasoned, “that success is going to come academically, too.”
