Teacher Testimonials

"I firmly believe that kids learn better when they're active, and while that's easy to do with 2nd graders, it's a little harder to get older kids motivated.  My students are asking every day to walk!  The players add such a modern touch that they can identify with and the students who teach each lesson are very engaging.  I can see parents using the program over the summer to keep kids in the swing of things and keep skills strong.  I'm excited about myself getting to walk every day too!  I have been telling all of my friends and family about this program.  My teacher friends are so jealous!  Thank you again for this amazing opportunity. "
—Tyra Harmon, Teacher, North Carolina

"I showed the program to our reading specialist and she thought that it was amazing.  What I really love is that it is cross curricular.  My kids are champing at the bit to walk every day."    
—Mary Obringer, Teacher, Ohio

"My students and I love The Walking Classroom.  Not only do the podcasts help cover the curriculum, but my students are so much more teachable when we get back to class.  They think they’re “getting out of something”, but in fact, they’re getting so much more."
—Chad Brown, Teacher, North Carolina

"We are getting to be old pros!  The Lewis and Clark expedition went well, as did our Walking Classroom adventure!  The kids’ recall of the material was very impressive.  Two of my guys with pretty severe attention issues answered nine of the ten comprehension questions correctly and added unique insight into the class discussion.  I could see the confidence in their smiles."
—Mary Tarashuk, Teacher, New Jersey
