President’s Message

Dan TimmFriends, Colleagues, Students, and Neighbors,

Welcome to Wisconsin Health and Physical Education! Thank you for taking time to visit with us. WHPE has been committed to promoting healthy lifestyles for over 120 years. Our innovative members encompass the state and represent a wide range of expertise in health and physical education at all levels of education. Their dedication to providing individuals, pre-kindergarten through college, with the tools necessary for healthy living is unsurpassed.

People are the foundation of any organization and our members are the foundation of WHPE. We exist as an organization because of our members. Our members are some of the finest educators in Wisconsin and have represented themselves, their schools, and WHPE well, locally, regionally, and nationally.

Reach Everyone is the theme I selected for my presidency. It’s what we do and need to do. All of us need to reach our students everyday in our teaching. In WHPE, we need to reach our members with professional development, advocacy, and benefits of membership. We need to reach outside the organization, connecting with individuals who may benefit from our message and services or membership in WHPE.

Browse our web site, meet our Board of Directors, visit us on Facebook at, or follow us on Twitter at #WHPE. Join us as we continue our history of excellence in health and physical education.

Dan Timm
