Sellers will vie with five other district winners for the honor of National Elementary Physical Education Teacher of the Year.

After more than a year of preparation, Frank Wagner Elementary School in Monroe has been officially accepted as a No Excuses University school. No Excuses University is a network of elementary, middle and junior high schools across the United States that actively promotes college readiness to all students.
More than three-quarters of the school's students are from low-income families. "We know the way out of poverty is through education," Principal Robin Fitch said.
Students plan out their education beyond elementary school and set early career goals. Teachers decorate classrooms with university pennants.
And once each week students and staff wear their special T-shirts marked with their high school graduation date.
As a No Excuses University school, teachers can now access more professional development tools.
