An advocate and her specialty, is the Sport Education model. She feels the self, peer and teacher assessments of this model work well for secondary students. It is an all inclusive model in which students enjoy participation and are responsible for their own learning.
Charla originally from Fairmont, NC married John Krahnke on June 14, 2013 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. They have resided at Ocean Isle Beach since her retirement June 2014.
Charla will continue to present Physical Education workshops for school districts and state conventions nationwide. After 32 years, there is nothing Charla would rather be doing than teaching others Physical Education.
It can best be said by her favorite quote,
“Love what you do, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
