LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston Public Schools’ (LPS) recently hired supervisor of health and physical education (PE) Judy LoBianco was recently featured in Education Week‘s annual “Leaders To Learn From” report. The report recognizes 12 exceptional leaders working to enact and inspire transformational change in the nation’s school districts.
“These 12 leaders are single-minded about finding solutions and trying new approaches, all in pursuit of excellence for the students, teachers, and communities they serve,” said Lesli Maxwell, assistant managing editor at Education Week and the executive project editor for Leaders To Learn From. “Too often, stories about the hard work and successes of these K-12 public servants don’t get told.”
The article on LoBianco talks about her commitment to having students of all athletic abilities succeed in her class. It also discusses her ability to know trends in her field, advocate for all school subjects and have moral courage.
LoBianco states in the article that she is driven by indicators like high childhood-obesity rates that have convinced her that students need the skills to seek out physical activities that they enjoy.
Prior to beginning at LPS on March 5, LoBianco served as supervisor of health, physical education and nursing for the South Orange-Maplewood school district. She is also the president of SHAPE America, the nation’s largest membership organization of health and physical education professionals.
