Thankful for Teachers!

Greetings to a New Year 2022!

My name is Betty Ann Fish, I am your 2022 President of SHAPE PA! I am excited to share my vision for the upcoming year to MOVE, CONNECT, BELONG.

We are a community connected by a passion for movement, health, wellness, teaching students, and making a difference and also for a strong sense of belonging among the SHAPE PA community.
