Emily Clowser and Liz Metz

Born and raised in Frederick County Maryland, Emily & Liz have traversed and conquered their education side by side. They have supported each other from middle to high school, undergraduate to graduate school and most recently while successfully earning their CAPE certification in 2020. Emily & Liz once heard “if work isn’t fun, you’re not playing on the right team.” This yin and yang duo are on the right team and within the last four years working together and having fun, they have revamped the FCPS Adapted PE Program. Together, they have introduced a Middle School Inclusive PE & Health program, updated their High School Unified Physical Activity class to include Leadership and have significantly increased the number of Special Olympics’ Unified Champion Schools in FCPS by implementing the Young Athletes Program. Emily & Liz have created numerous Adapted PE professional learning opportunities to support teachers in Frederick County, throughout Maryland and at the National level. In order to support their school-based teachers, who are also direct service providers, Emily and Liz have created many implementation resources such as:
 Grade level PE Skills Inventory
 District Adapted PE Assessment
 Goal writing templates
 Data Collection Tools
 Quarterly Progress & Annual Review Templates
Emily & Liz are both members of SHAPE Maryland, SHAPE America and the Maryland Adapted Physical Education Consortium (MAPEC). They are also active on the national scene both attending and presenting at the National Adapted PE Conference (NAPEC) and hosting monthly National Google Meets. Come out to have some fun and learn something new about writing Adapted PE Goals!
