Kevin Anderson began his career as a health and physical education educator with the Baltimore City Public School System. For five years Mr. Anderson enjoyed his role as a Health Teacher at West Baltimore Middle School before transitioning into the role as a Physical Education Teacher at the same school. Opportunities persisted for Mr. Anderson as a Physical Education Teacher and between 1999 - 2012 he served at 6 City Schools in that capacity.
As a Health and Physical Education Teacher in Baltimore City, Mr. Anderson noticed the lack of consistent, quality wellness and athletic programming for Baltimore City Youth. Mr. Anderson also acknowledged that many students deprived of such quality programming stem from neighborhoods where residents are at or below poverty level. Having the desire to fulfill this need, Mr. Anderson created an organization whose mission is to provide consistent, quality holistic wellness and athletic programming year-round for elementary/middle school students regardless of circumstances - NEW(Nutrition, Education, and Wellness)fit Kids.
Mr. Anderson's greatest accomplishment as the Founder & Owner of NEWfit Kids, thus far, is impacting the over 5,000 children that have participated in various wellness and athletic programs. Through the participation in NEWfit sports leagues, students have improved their school attendance rates, conduct, and expanded their social-emotional skills and parents have enriched the relationship with their child's school by taking an active role in family engagement activities (such as school meetings and events).
Kevin Anderson holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with a minor in Psychology and a Master of Arts and Teaching Degree. He is also certified in Physical Education and Health Education holding an APC and (Advanced Professional Certificate) and Admin 1 Certificate.
