National Physical Education and School Sport Institute with Artie Kamiya

Artie Kamiya was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Overweight as an elementary school child, he was often subjected to many of the negative aspects of traditional physical education (i.e., being selected last for teams, not doing well in relays, etc.). However, he was fortunate to have been encouraged through a strong junior high physical education program and slowly became interested in the sport of gymnastics. He competed in high school, collegiate level (Los Angeles City College, Cal State LA), and at the 1972 National NCAA Gymnastics Championships on the rings. Upon receiving a Masters of Art in Teaching (MAT) degree from the University of North Carolina, he worked as an elementary physical education teacher for Wake County Public Schools (Raleigh, NC). While in this position, he was able to become involved in curriculum writing, presenting, and other leadership activities. In 1983, he was hired by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction as a Physical Education Consultant. In 1996, he was promoted to the Section Chief for Arts and Healthful Living. In this position, he directed a cadre of 11 professionals representing the Arts (Music, Dance, Visual Arts, Theatre Arts) and Healthful Living (Health, Physical Education, Athletics, Driver Education). From 2001-2005, he was the Senior Administrator for K-12 Healthful Living Education for Wake County Schools. He was recognized in 2004 as the National Physical Education Administrator of the Year.
