Dee Castelvecchi, of Elizabeth Davis Middle School, is the nation’s top health teacher. On April 26 in Charlotte, N.C., she will receive the Health Education Professional of the Year School K-12 Award from the American Association for Health Education.

Ms. Castelvecchi is the third teacher in Chesterfield County Public Schools to win the nation’s top award: Bailey Bridge Middle’s Misti Wajciechowski won in 2010 and Carver Middle’s Kay Schiltz won in 2006.

A health and P.E teacher, Castelvecchi has been with Chesterfield County Public Schools for 10 years. Her path to becoming the nation’s top health teacher began when she was named Virginia’s top health teacher, then was selected as one of six regional winners, then was chosen from those six winners as Health Education Professional of the Year.

Castelvecchi, who is also a clinical faculty member at VCU, has been a member and served on committees of numerous professional associations including the Virginia Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance; the American Alliance of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance; the National Association for Sports and Physical Education; and the American Association for Health Education.
