ENC’s Teacher Exchange Program Gaining Momentum

Mid-December marked the first release of the Teacher Exchange Program to the American Association and Family and Consumer Sciences (AAFCS) teachers. So far more than 330 educators from 30 states have joined the group. Three videos have been released on the website. In the first video Executive Director, Mitch Kanter discussed the details of the program and the second video with Dr. Ron Kleinman discussed the obesity epidemic. The third video highlighted a school with a successful Fit-Nut program combining a nutrition and physical activity class to teach students more about nutrition. This video is a perfect example of some of the tools ENC would like teachers to create as well as other educational materials that can be shared with the group. An additional press release promoting the program was released earlier in February, so we will provide updates as the program continues to expand.
