Weaver Academy Teacher Named N.C. High School P.E. Teacher of the Year

Nov. 18, 2020 -- Amanda Browning has had quite the year. After being named a top six finalist for the Guilford County Schools (GCS) Teacher of the Year, Browning now has a different top prize to put on her shelf.

The North Carolina Society of Health and Physical Educators (NC SHAPE) has named Browning, a 17-year veteran physical education teacher at Weaver Academy, the North Carolina High School Physical Education Teacher of the Year.

Browning has given numerous presentations at the local and state level and was a presenter at the 2019 SHAPE National Convention in Tampa, FL.  She has worked to develop curriculum for GCS and serves as a cooperating teacher for several local universities.

“The individuals selected for our State Teachers of the Year reflect the highest quality of health education teaching and dedicated achievement. We are so pleased to be able to highlight these educators as they represent the very best from the more than 4,000 K-12 health and physical education teachers working in North Carolina,” said Deanna Morris, 2020 NC SHAPE president.

In addition to teaching, Browning is the Interact Club faculty advisor, a service-learning club for students sponsored by the Crescent Rotary Club.  She organizes an annual art festival for students with special needs and collaborates with students to plan an annual school wide walk and fundraiser event to promote heart health.
