Tammie Miller from Baltimore’s Gardenville Elementary was recognized as the Most Valuable Principal in the Playworks’ network of schools. Ms. Miller, a first-year Playworks principal, was honored at the 2009 Get in the Game dinner for her dynamic way of building play into the culture of her school. According to Playworks Program Manager Laura Deeprose, “Principal Miller welcomed us with open arms and engaged the entire school with all the different aspects that we offer. She personally demonstrated how to use play to better staff and students alike.”

Please note: The Get in the Game dinner awards were held earlier this spring, prior to Sports4Kids’ changing its name to Playworks.
