I’m a teacher and I spent part of my summer on the other side of the desk. I attended several classes including one called “Be Fit 2 Learn” that focused on improving academic performance through physical fitness.
As a former athlete, coach and athletic trainer, I was attracted to the topic. I was a kid who had trouble sitting in a chair. I’ve always felt that my memory and creativity are enhanced when I’m moving.
