MPACT 2013 has ended

The Curriculum & Instruction Department of Manor ISD is pleased to announce MPACT.  Through MPACT, learners will be inspired to impact our students, exchange ideas with other teacher leaders, administrators, and community partners; and learn ways to engage and motivate our diverse student population. This teaching and learning institute is appropriate for all of us because we are interested in "Impacting Student Achievement Through Engaged, Aligned Classrooms."  

We encourage you to arrive early for check in to get your swag bag and to start your day networking with your fellow MISD educators before the sessions begin . Click here to download a pdf version of the full progam for MPACT. It will provide you with tips on how to make the most of your day. Additionally, SCHED Planner is the tool you will use to build your personal itinerary for MPACT. Most sessions are designed for any audience and  sessions are faciliated by your peers and some guest speakers. If you are unsure how to register, watch this video.

Star the sessions that you would like to attend. Choose only ONE session per timeslot. It will be important that you bring your technology since we will not have paper copies available and any updates to sessions and session locations will be available on this site only. Remember to bookmark the mobile app or print your schedule before you come. Dress comfortably as there are some sessions that will be very interactive. Finally, check out all of our participating vendors and exhibitors. Stop by their tables to hear and/or see what they have to offer. You never know what types of goodies you will pick up at their tables or what you may win at the end of the day.  See you at MPACT!

Sheldon Williams

Better Bodies
Certified Trainer
Manor, TX

Sheldon Williams is an elite certified personal trainer with a focus on complete fitness and wellness of the whole person. Sheldon has been nurturing the inspiration of his passion for fitness since his adolescent years. In pursuit of mastering the art and discipline of fitness, Sheldon received his first certification in 1988 at Scottsdale Junior College, where he was awarded an athletic scholarship in basketball. He continued to hone his basketball skills and increase his knowledge as a Kinesiology major at Arizona State University.

Through practical application and continuing education, Sheldon quickly developed a keen eye for problem areas in individuals, ethnic groups, economic classes and select communities. Committed to providing the highest level of service, professionalism and results, Sheldon obtained a Master Trainer designation through the Cooper Institute for Aerobic Research.

After 3 years as Manager of Personal Trainers at Future Firm health club, Sheldon realized they did not share his enthusiasm for total fitness and began to aggressively build his client portfolio of professional, collegiate and amateur athletes, stay-at-home mothers, corporate executives and government assistance recipients, to name a few.

In 2005, Sheldon officially established himself with the inception of Better Bodies by Sheldon, offering one-on-one training, social/corporate group training, sports specific training, cardiovascular conditioning and functional strength training. Three years later, Better Bodies is providing comprehensive fitness programs to more than 15 individuals, residents of six apartment complexes (including an assisted living community for seniors), 4 weekly sessions at Austin Can! Academy (including an elite sports fitness class). He also volunteers as a leadership coach and Mentor at Austin Can! Academy (school for at risk youth) , Decker Middle School, Manor Middle School and in the east Austin community.

Sheldon has a natural talent to motivate and work effectively with all walks of life. He is committed to the highest standard of personal excellence, with a proven track record of unprecedented sporting accomplishments and fitness goals. Sheldon combines his education, athletic background and more than 23 years of fitness experience to help his clients achieve their desired fitness goals.
