Tracy teaches first grade at Woodville Heights Elementary School in Jackson, MS, and here's what she had to say:"My students are in love with GoNoodle! and all of the wonderful features it offers. We are especially excited to join Maximo with the short stretching techniques each and every day. The number one benefit of using GoNoodle! has to be the joy I see in my students’ faces after our brief workouts. They are more motivated to complete class activities, incorporate healthy choices in snacks each week and for many it helps boost their self confidence. As a teacher I am overjoyed to be able to introduce a different way of motivating my students to make healthier choices."
Thank you, Tracy, for sharing with us!
