My Students

Many children all over the United States, especially in Georgia, are struggling with obesity and other health problems.

My students are eager, creative learners who are constantly seeking new ways of learning.

I am constantly looking for new ways to challenge my students to be healthy lifelong learners. Technology is awesome, but it's not always easy for teachers to get their hands on these tools.

My Project

What better way to make students' lives better than by making them healthier? Georgia is third in the nation for childhood obesity. I am requesting an iPad that my students can use to access nutrition apps to discover exciting ways to eat healthy, exercise, and learn all at the same time!

Why is my project so important?

Students need to learn how to be healthy and stay healthy. Healthy bodies mean healthy brains. Healthy children are happy children. I want my students to be happy healthy lifelong learners!
