Michele Batz Interview
Michele's creativity-inspiring responses to questions about her teaching style, instilling leadership qualities in kids, and her philosophy on life.
Michele Batz is a 30+ year physical educator with a masters and PhD in holistic nutrition and masters in Administration.
She's a fitness writer and enjoys motivating others physically and creatively. The arts with movement is an element she is working on in her classes and with the help of CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Children's Health) to combine all elements of leading a healthy, active life. CATCH involves the whole school community, physical education teachers, classroom teachers, cafeteria, parents and the community. This is a wonderful way to educate our youth to fight children's obesity.
Michele enjoys life with her husband in Northern Illinois. After losing her son Cory to cancer in 2012, they started Cory's Project, a public charity organization that supports the children in the HOT unit at Children's Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
