Loved every bit! Already signed up for the next class!
I was delightfully surprised and then excited as your classes are fantastic for helping bridge brain based research into a functioning classroom. I am new to to online learning and really found it effective and motivating.
I’m an elementary PE teacher and it’s so nice to have all of this research compiled into one spot that is so supportive of integrating movement in the classroom that I can now easily share the results from many different studies on the effects of movement and the brain and how critical it is for our students’ success.
