Dr. Louise McCormack is currently a professor in the Health and Human Performance department at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, N.H. Louise received her Bachelor of Health and Physical Education degree from Plymouth State College, her Masters of Education degree in Health and Physical Education from The Ohio State University, and her Doctor of Education degree from Boston University. During her 25 year tenure Louise has been the physical education pedagogy coordinator, student teaching coordinator for physical education and health education, coordinator of part-time instruction, and co-advisor for both HPER Club and Phi Epsilon Kappa Honorary Society. She is presently coordinator of the teacher certification program for physical education and health education.
Louise has received several awards within the field that recognized her contributions to teaching, service and scholarship. These awards came from the New Hampshire Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (NHAHPERD), Eastern District Association (EDA), and American Alliance in Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD). In 1999 Plymouth State recognized her as the Distinguished Teacher of the Year. Some of the reasons cited for this honor was she "appreciates and respects students and treats them as colleagues and serves as an effective role model for her students and colleagues and involves students themselves in scholarly activities."
During the past fifteen years Louise has involved over 60 students in presentations and publications at the state, district and national level while bringing dozens more to state, regional and national conferences. Her philosophy of engaging teacher education candidates early within his/her academic program of studies has produced professionals whose goal it is to enhance movement opportunities for all members of society.
