Keeping Active in Mind and Body to Enhance Student Opportunities in Education.
September 10, 2017 05:54 PM PDT
Andy Horne: This is my 12th year teaching high school health and physical education. In 2015, I had the honor and privilege to be recognized as SHAPE America’s National Health Education Teacher of the Year. Graduating from Indiana University, I taught in Bloomington, IN for year before coming to New Trier High School in 2003. My goal is to help students develop feelings of self-confidence and self-worth, and to empower them to believe they can accomplish their goals. I try to passionately lead with enthusiasm, inspire my students to be both health literate and persistent lifelong learners, and provide them the tools to make healthy decisions. You can follow me on twitter as @MrHorne101 where I mostly tweet about health, physical education and coaching related topics. Also you can check out my “Scholarly Raps” on YouTube helping bring health topics to life!

Adopt-a-Gym is a “by kids, for kids” fundraiser where a school raises funds to purchase physical education equipment for another school that is short on resources to purchase adequate equipment. Funds are raised through a fun fitness event such as fun runs, dance-a-thons and other creative active events.
This process has many benefits! Students from the donor school learn the power of philanthropy; they learn that, yes, they CAN make a difference in the world! They learn that they don’t need to receive something in return in order to give; that the positive change they create in the lives of children just like them makes it all worth while!
Teachers from the schools that receive the equipment can give their students the well-rounded physical education program they deserve. The students will not only be exposed to numerous physical activities, but get hands on experience because of the volume of equipment their physical educators have access to. This can lead to tons of fun, reduction in childhood obesity, college scholarships & most of all, overall healthier lifestyle habits.
Last, but certainly not least, the students learn that there are good people in the world. This lesson of humanity builds good faith inside them which could lead to them passing it on throughout their lives. The character built during the whole process is immeasurable!#113 The Neuroscience of Movement with Dr. John Ratey
