Happy New Year! Can you feel the momentum moving into this new year? There’s so much to be grateful for just thinking about the first couple of weeks in January. It’s phenomenal. I’m excited and honored to be speaking at the Norris School Staff Martin Luther King Jr. Professional Development Day on January 16th about the importance of health, wellness, and kinesthetic lessons to meet the needs of the whole child and whole teacher.
A huge thanks to Superintendent Dr. Skretta who invited me to Nebraska. He’s presented nationally on topics ranging from health and wellness to school safety, instructional leadership, school improvement, and human resources. Dr. Skretta was an invited speaker for the Let’s Move Active Schools national rollout, joining First Lady Michelle Obama on a conference call which included other key leaders in student health and nutrition. Dr. Skretta was an invited participant at the Let’s Move! Active Schools Leadership Roundtable 2014 White House Event sponsored by the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition. His articles have appeared in numerous publications including NCSA Today, AASPA’s Perspective, Principal Leadership, and English Journal. Thanks to Dr. Skretta and the Norris staff for the invitation to share creative ways of creating meaningful health and wellness changes within teachers and students.
I have my warm coat, hat, and gloves all ready to go. : ) Please visit my new website for a new year at eduninja.net for more blogs and learning about classroom activities.
