Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold. Joseph Chilton Pearce
I am Coach Tika Britt. I represent a fantastic non-profit organization call Playworks. The mission of Playworks is to improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe meaningful play.
Each day I strive to run a high quality program meaning: a high function recess and a positive class and recess climate. I teach students the importance of respect, why we should include others, which in turn will help create a helthy community where everyone is engaged in healthy play. By doing so, this will reduce bullying at schools and within their social networks, increase class learning time, and help kids feel safe at school. I coordinate recess, and have class game time with each class, and run a junior coach program. I also participate in leagues, established by the orgainization and in an after-school program.
To continue to make these things happen, I need your help! In the Boston Metro, the organization currently serves 32 schools for 15,000 plus students daily. Thus, Playworks is doing the Share the Love of Play campaign to raise money. The money raised will help with the cost of having Playworks in the schools. Please join me in this cause. Any contribution will bring us closer to our goal!
