Mrs. West from Cutler Bay FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Healthy Habits

My students need to understand how health and wellness affect their productivity in the classroom, at home and in the community. These items will create a mindset of healthy habits to promote wellness in student lives.

My Students

I teach in a diverse setting, encouraging high school students to utilize critical thinking to learn about health and wellness, business, finance, government, and the arts. About the school: Our senior high school is located in South Dade (Florida). Students attending this school must apply to one of the three academies: Marine Biology, Career and Technology, or The Humanities. Students in ninth through twelfth grades take rigorous courses such as Advanced Placement, Cambridge and Dual Enrollment (College Courses at Miami-Dade College). Our student population includes various learners such as English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), the Gifted, and Special Needs.

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." - Albert Einstein

My Project

Teaching students healthy habits is an important part of being college, career and life ready. Health and wellness affect the student's ability to perform in the day-to-day task. Creating a mindset of healthy habits will benefit students short and long term. While in high school, students will be able to understand why it is important to establish a culture of practicing healthy habits. From these practices, students will create a routine that is manageable and conducive. The choice of practicing healthy habits will positively affect students career and life style that they live as an adult.

One meaningful activity supported by the requested project funding is learning about germs and how they affect the human health by reading the book Germ Hunter: A Story about Louis Pasteur.

Additional requested project resources would be used by students such as hand-sanitizer keeping the high schoolers germ free. Clorox wipes to clean doors, desk and other areas in the classroom where germs are housed.

The early pioneers of both wellness and network marketing were motivated by the sense that it was possible to create a better life than the conventional routes offered - better personal health and better economic health, respectively. Now the alternatives of yesterday have become the economic powerhouses of today and tomorrow by Paul Zane Pilzer.
