.Elementary schools will receive visits from Stuffee- remains the star of the show. This program will remain pretty much the same as it always has with a very important addition-mind and brain health. Kids won't ever forget the new and even more pertinent health education lessons.. Students will learn how to take care of their brain now and as they grow. They will walk away with grade appropriate tips on mindfulness, stress management. Just as the 3,000 kids never forgot Stuffee and the Healthy Starts lessons in the past, the new group
Middle and high school students will get yearly visits to reinforce the essential health topics that they only learn once briefly in ninth or tenth grade for one semester:( Healthy Starts for Schools lessons will have a heavy focus on brain development in the teen years, addiction, substance use and abuse, vaping, consent and one of my favorite subjects to teach to teens-marijuana prevention (YES IT IS ADDICTIVE) .
We complain about the poor health of our kids yet health education in schools is simply not happening enough-if at all. It is disgraceful to only offer one semester of health to our kids as we pour more and more academics, sports and other resume builders on them and ask them to perform at high levelswith no healthy coping tools. (Is it a wonder substance abuse is so high?) It is time for Healthy Starts for Schools to help fill this void and put a dent in the poor health of our students. We will teach them HEALTHY COPING TOOLS!! We answer questions honestly and openly. Kids love to ask the hard questions about mental health and all health areas provided a comfortable setting and instructor. We provide research based facts and lessons. HIRE US TODAY!!!
Health lessons are some of the first subjects to be skipped when teachers have a full load (unless you are a health teacher). There are California Health Standards for Health as for every other subject but they are rarely addressed thoroughly if at all. This is not a criticism. It is a fact. It is unfortunate especially when we look at the poor mental and physical health of our school aged kids. With so much focus and parent anxiety over STEM and other academic subjects, schools have to put some subjects on the back burner. In reality, health shouldn't be taught by a classroom teacher anyway. This is why I am relaunching Healthy Starts for Schools. As the creator of this program and with my health education and background (with an MPH and 25 years teaching every health subject to every demographic), we would LOVE to come teach health for you. If we are still remote, even better, we will make a remote lesson and be your guest or "field trip" for the day. Looking forward to healthier days ahead and healthier kids in schools!
