First grade students at Norman Elementary in Austin have an exceptional teacher in Marta Galan. A former physical education teacher from Spain, Ms. Galan understands that if the kids “don’t have a healthy style of life, they cannot study. They cannot do anything.” This is the best and most important thing, Ms. Galan says. “There are many students who have never tried an apple or something like that and they did for the first time this fall. I love this program.”
Ms. Galan uses some of the produce she receives for science experiments in class. The photos below came from a week when she and the kids received celery in their Brighter Bites bags.
