Mount Pleasant Elementary School Teacher Matthew Farina has been awarded a $2,000 grant from Voya’s Unsung Hero’s Program for his innovative teaching idea, “Exer-Bike to Books Movement Room.”

Head to Delaware Today to read the full article.

Matthew’s program is focused on a fitness-integrated teaching initiative, incorporating exercise into the everyday classroom. According to Farina, studies have shown that physical activity in the daily lives of students has a positive effect on their cognitive skills, attitudes, academic behaviors and achievements. Students involved in the program will have an opportunity to learn while moving. In launching the program, the group will purchase stationary pedal desks to promote a learning movement room for the students by providing fitness and fun in the classroom.
