I am an instructor at the University of West Georgia. I recently graduated with my PhD in Physical Education Teacher Education from the University of Kentucky (Go Big Blue!). I have experience teaching physical education in the K-12 grades as well as at the university level. My dissertation focus was on the student perceived motivational climate and student enjoyment in middle school PE. I love traveling and directing camps at various locations over the years has allowed me to see some beautiful places across the US. I am so excited to be Camp Director for this summer. It is truly my favorite time of the year!
Taylor Booher Nutrition
I am currently a senior in the dietetics program at Central Michigan University and will be serving as a nutrition instructor this summer! I am involved in the Student Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Zeta Theta Pi Local Service Sorority, a huge Michigan State fan and am also a server at Cracker Barrel and Applebee’s.
I have had many experiences with nutrition involving food safety lessons, fun cooking demos, building community gardens for elementary schools, and even dressing up as a cow to promote dairy products! I am thrilled to share my nutrition experiences with Camp Shane and make it a fun, positive experience that the campers will be able to take back home with them.
