fit Educator
I am a PE teacher at a traditional school in Portland, Oregon and also teach health classes on an online website. I use Sanford fit free resources, especially the slideshow and videos for my "Word of the Week" and "Exercise of the Week" where I introduce health and fitness concepts to my students at the beginning and end of class. My athletes are engaged immediately and it helps create more meaningful class discussions. In addition, I have used the curriculum for digital learning and PE Zoom meetings to include health and nutrition lessons. I love the Sanford fit curriculum and would recommend it to all teachers!

Educator Mrs. Szwarc - Sanford fit

“I love FitBoost as a quick way to incorporate movement between lessons! The activities randomly change each time and have a large timer on the screen so students know when it's time to move on. It allows kids to move and reset their brains without taking up a lot of time!

The FitSchools lessons perfectly match with health standards. They are simple, quick lessons that come with an activity for students to show what they learned.”
