She has taught physical education in both private and public schools for more than 14 years-6 years of those without a gym. Sutherland has taught every type of student-at risk, disadvantaged, and privileged-and has coached a variety of sports. She was part of the curriculum writing team for a $1 million grant project with the University of Maryland, National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Prince George's County Public Schools. In 2001, Sutherland received a national teaching award presented by Coca-Cola and HealthSouth for developing a dynamic physical education program that exceeded the expectations of her city, state, and school. A member of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) and MAHPERD, Sutherland is a popular speaker at state conventions and countywide in-services. She is also a member of the Association for Active Lifestyles and Fitness (AALF) and National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE). Sutherland earned a master's degree in physical education, administration, and supervision from Old Dominion University.
