Health Teacher Certification
(1) Rationale. A health education teacher is an effective communicator, a responsible citizen, a selfdirected lifelong learner, and a critical thinker who implements the goals and objectives of the Alabama Course of Study: Health Education. These Standard are aligned with the Standard for the preparation of teachers of health education from SHAPE America (Society of Health and Physical Education), formerly known as the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD). The Standard build upon the Alabama Core Teaching Standard. An option to combine health education and physical education is provided in Rule 290-3-3-.12.01.
