Meghan Bright: Wellness Education

Profile:

Hello! My name is Meghan Bright and I am your child's wellness education teacher at Curtisville Primary Center. Since joining Deer Lakes in 2015, I have embraced a variety of roles, including student teacher, substitute teacher, technology coach, and wellness teacher. My dedication to student well-being extends beyond the classroom, as I coordinate the Kids of Steel program during the school year and summer. Additionally, I play an active role on both our building and district wellness committees and contribute as a member of Curtisville's PBIS committee. I am committed to fostering a supportive and healthy environment for our students and staff. 
 
I live in Cranberry Township with my son, daughter, and golden doodle. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside. My favorite activities include camping, fishing, kayaking, hiking, and swimming. I am passionate about being active and healthy. 

About Wellness Education at Curtisville:

Our curriculum consists of four main pillars: physical health, social/emotional health, nutrition, and knowledge of the human body. The old model of physical education was based on sports and games to fill the class time. In reality, this was not providing students with the skills they needed to be active and healthy for a lifetime. Our department now focuses on other aspects of health and provides students with the confidence they need to take care of themselves. Not everyone is going to play sports to stay healthy, especially throughout adulthood. I like to focus on lifelong activities and help students find what they are passionate about when it comes to movement. Our health education model focuses on the whole child. This means that students learn about a variety of health concepts including physical health, social/emotional health, nutrition, and knowledge of the human body. The wellness department provides students with the skills they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle for many years to come. The learning is centered around self-care or well-being and less around sports and games. I want my students to enjoy movement and understand the importance of taking care of their body and mind.
