Jashaun Britton, the test coordinator at Buck Lodge Middle School in Adelphi, said some teachers and staff had trouble finding time to work out, given their busy work schedules and homes lives — at least until Carolyn Goode came along.
Last year, Goode, a health teacher at the school, began to head the school’s Wellness Council, a group consisting of staff looking for ways to implement health-related programs.
With Goode at the helm, the council began new programs aimed at creating a healthier lifestyle for the school’s roughly 800 students, staff said.
“This is the kind of work that I am passionate about: the health and wellness of younger people,” said Goode, who was named in June as one of 18 Healthy Schools Program Champions across the nation by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. “I was elated to be selected as a national spokesperson for a program I agree with.”
