Kalie McKinley, a teacher in Louisville, Kentucky, won the SHAPE America Midwest District High School Physical Education Teacher of the Year award for 2018. SHAPE is the nation's largest membership organization of health and physical education professionals.

"I needed an online program because I have two young children," McKinley said. "The state of Kentucky requires that new teachers must have a master's degree half done within the first five years of teaching and fully finished within 10 years."
