Founder & Director – Matthew Schinelli
I founded NJAPE to advocate for the inclusive recreation, fitness, physical education, and wellness needs of all people. 2017 marks my 24th year in this field; my experiences include serving as a consultant for Special Olympics New Jersey, Physical Education Teacher (Livingston Public Schools), adjunct faculty for Montclair State University, Director of the JCC MetroWest Special Needs Department, and member of The Phoenix Center Board of Directors. My training includes a Masters in Kinesiology—Adapted Physical Education from The University of Virginia, where I was directly advised by the foremost experts in Adapted and Inclusive Physical Education.
